Michael Keane completed his move from Burnley for a fee that could rise to a Club record-equalling £30million in July 2017.
 
The England defender penned a five-year deal at Goodison Park.
 
Keane came through the ranks at Manchester United and signed his first professional contract with the Red Devils on his 18th birthday.
 
He made his first-team debut for the Red Devils in the League Cup against Aldershot Town the same year (2011) and after several more appearances in the competition, and productive loan spells with Leicester City, Derby County and Blackburn Rovers, made his Premier League bow as a 43rd-minute substitute in a 1-1 draw with Sunderland in August 2014.

Prior to that, the Stockport-born defender had won United’s Reserve Player of the Year award in 2012 after helping the reserve team win the league title, securing the prize with 60 per cent of the overall vote, with current Three Lions teammate Jesse Lingard named the runner-up on 24 per cent.

Keane joined Burnley on an initial six-month loan deal in September 2014, before completing a permanent move for an undisclosed fee in January 2015.

His performances in the Premier League earned him his first senior England call-up in October 2016 and he was then given his debut by Gareth Southgate – formerly his international manager at Under-21 level - in a friendly defeat in Germany, where he impressed for the full 90 minutes to earn a second cap days later in a World Cup qualifying win over Lithuania at Wembley.

Keane’s efforts also earned him a nomination for the PFA Young Player of the Year award and Burnley’s Players’ Player of the Year Award.

After making his Everton debut in the Europa League qualifying tie with Ruzomberok at Goodison Park in July 2017, Keane would go on to make 38 appearances for the Blues in his maiden season. He netted his first goal for the Toffees in the following round, nodding home a Leighton Baines cross against Hajduk Split.

A foot injury curtailed his progress across the turn of the year but in 2018 he became a regular at the heart of the Everton defence.

Keane added two further appearances for England, caps number three and four, in World Cup qualifying wins over Slovenia and Lithuania. 

Did You Know?
Michael, whose father was born in Dublin, played for the Republic of Ireland at Under-17 and Under-19 level before switching allegiances to represent England.
 
Contracted until: June 2022
