"First and foremost, the manager was a big factor in me coming to the club".

"We've signed Michael Keane on a five-year deal for a fee which could rise to a club-record £30m", Everton said on Twitter. I feel like this is a great place to come and continue my development as a player.

Burnley have been resigned to losing Keane with the player entering the final of his contract at Turf Moor and a number of top clubs chasing his signature after an impressive campaign for club and country last season.

The Toffees may also conduct further business with Burnley this summer after reports talks have opened over striker Andre Gray.

Keane was reportedly hopeful of a return to former club Manchester United, but they opted to sign Victor Lindelof from Benfica.

But Everton stole in to snap up the centre-back, who received his first two England caps during the March global break, playing against Germany and Lithuania for Gareth Southgate's side. I'm only 24 which, for a centre-half in the Premier League, is relatively young.

In March, Keane made his full England debut in a friendly against Germany before playing in a World Cup qualifier versus Lithuania. However, he's looked ready for a step up during his time at the level. Keane told Sky Sports News HQ.

Ronald Koeman believes the £30 million signing of England defender Michael Keane offers another clear statement of Everton's ambition as the manager took his summer spending to nearly £100 million.

The defender is due to complete his medical with the Merseyside outfit on Monday ahead of signing a five year deal worth £90,000 per week. Having battled hard to get in the first team earlier in his career, he'll be determined to take his chance at the top table of English football.
