Keane Nominated For PFA Award

13 April 2017

Michael Keane has been short-listed for the Professional Footballers' Association Young Player of the Year Award.

The defender's superb Premier League campaign with the Clarets has been recognised by a nomination for the award by his fellow professionals across the game.

Keane is short-listed alongside 2016 winner Dele Alli, Alli's Tottenham and England team-mate Harry Kane, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, Manchester City winger Leroy Sane and Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. 

PFA members from 100 clubs in the Premier League, English Football League and Women's Super League voted for their top players in the 2016/17 season.

And Keane is in the running for the young players' award, with the winner to be announced at the 44th PFA Awards in the Grosvenor House in London on Sunday, 23 April.

Keane, 24, has been an ever-present for the Clarets this season as part of a defensive line which has helped goalkeeper Tom Heaton keep nine clean sheets as the bedrock of Burnley's bid to preserve their top-flight status.

And the former Manchester United centre-back, who moved to Turf Moor in September, 2014, also won his first two senior England caps last month after forcing his way into Gareth Southgate's squad.
