Sean Dyche: Chelsea target not for sale

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has insisted that the club will not sell young defender Michael Keane at any price. The former Manchester United graduate has been linked with Chelsea in recent weeks.

Blues boss Antonio Conte is believed to have earmarked the centre-half as a potential target for the New Year as he bids to refresh his backline which will see the likes of John Terry and Gary Cahill leave at the end of the season.

Dyche, whilst being questioned on the speculation, revealed that the player is content with his role at Turf Moor, and the club are pretty confident of keeping hold of their asset for the season at the least.

"It's just life at Burnley. 'Keano' has been really clear-minded through the summer. He is not for sale," he told reporters. 

Burnley will play hosts to in-form Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
