Everton still lead Keane pursuit — In Focus

That has left Everton at the front of the queue for his signature after Liverpool did not follow up their initial interest, presumably amid the furore surrounding the tapping up of Virgil van Dijk.

Republic of Ireland worldwide McCarthy, 26, has also been linked with Newcastle United and Everton this summer.

Talk of a move to Everton has quietened in recent weeks, but according to The Sun, the Toffees are still very much in charge of the pursuit as they consider whether to make their move.

It has been claimed the Clarets have discussed a deal for the 26-year-old with Everton, but McCarthy might not be keen on a switch to Turf Moor.

Everton are thought to be holding out for a bid of at least £20m for the Republic of Ireland global, but Burnley could be open to the idea of using Michael Keane as a makeweight in the deal.

The Times reported earlier this year that a deal worth £26m for the Englishman, who left Old Trafford back in January 2015, had been effectively completed ahead of the summer transfer window.

The defender could cost £25m after an impressive season at the heart of Burnley's defence.

"If nothing happens that's suitable for us, the situation will go on and he will carry on playing".

That is only likely to increase in the coming weeks as Ronald Koeman is willing to wait until he has secured other targets this summer before moving to bring the England global to Goodison Park.

"The fact is all parties are in the loop - I am, his agent is, he is, his family, our club".
