​Burnley centre back Michael Keane has been the centre of many transfer rumours this window, with the young defender being linked away from Turf Moor.


However, the former Manchester United academy player has told the Lancashire Telegraph of his continued happiness at the club, before going on to speak about the Clarets' form this season on their return to the Premier League.

"It’s nice to see. It wouldn’t happen if you weren’t playing well. But I don’t let it affect me at all, it doesn’t affect me going into matchday or going into training every day. I just get on with my football. I’m really happy here at Burnley, but it is flattering to see.


"2016 was a brilliant year for Burnley, but 2017 could be even bigger if we stay in the Premier League and we have a brilliant new training facility, which we will be hopefully moving into February time.

"The club is moving on and, taking it step by step, getting bigger and bigger, so it’s a good time to be a Burnley fan. It’s exciting. The training ground now is nice and compact, it’s nice and cosy and has a great feel about it.


"But when you go over there and look at the size of it, you see how far the club has come in the last few years. You feel a sense of pride that you’ve been part of that. It will be brilliant once all the lads are in there. Everyone is looking forward to it and I’m sure it will give everyone a lift."
