Leicester City will continue their interest in Burnley defender Michael Keane and make a £17million offer, according to reports.

This is according to the Sunday People, aw it appears the Foxes are determined to add to their squad with defensive reinforcements ahead of their title defence.

The 23-year-old former Manchester United is understood to have turned down £30,000 a week contract offer from Burnley in order to manufacture a move to the Champions..

Sean Dyche is believed to have already rejected one approach from Leicester, and is adamant that the defender is worth £20million.

Keane has played in 69 games for the Lancashire club, scoring five goals and notching six assists as he built a reputation as one of the best young English defenders.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton was highly complimentary of Dyche’s squad after their friendly against Burnley last week.

“Don’t forget what you’re facing and this isn’t to put ourselves down in any shape or form but in my opinion Andre Gray is a £20-25 million striker, the market would say £15 million but if he moves at all he will move for more.

“You look at Michael Keane and as Sean Dyche quite rightly said he is a £25 million defender.”
