I got told via a TV screen! - Dyche cools Keane exit talk

Burnley boss Sean Dyche says the club will not be looking to sell England international Michael Keane as the defender is under contract.

Reports claiming England defender Michael Keane will leave Burnley at the end of the season are premature, according to manager Sean Dyche.

Keane has been the subject of intense transfer speculation since winning his first two international caps in March, with reports on Thursday suggesting he had told the club of his desire to be depart Turf Moor.

But Dyche shrugged off the links with clubs including Chelsea, Tottenham and Everton, despite the centre-back having just over a year remaining on his Burnley contract.

'I got told via a TV screen he will be leaving," Dyche told reporters on Friday. "It was news to me as manager. 

"Nothing has changed - he's focussed on the job in hand, he's delivering performances, any other information will be in the summer and only if it's an appropriate situation for all parties. He knows that."
