Everton right back Jonjoe Kenny is closing in on a loan switch to looks set to Celtic, on a deal to the end of the season.

Burnley were in contact with the Toffees over the 23-year-old between Christmas and New Year, and there was a growing confidence a deal could be done during the week, but it is believed the Clarets were not prepared to do business at Everton’s asking price of £10m.

Kenny has made 48 appearances for Everton, since emerging as a youth product, but is down the pecking order at Goodison Park, and spent last season out on loan at Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga.

Dyche earlier said he felt it was “unlikely” Burnley would get any deals over the line before tomorrow’s deadline: “At this stage it's looking improbable I would say that we get things done - there's big numbers (required) to get things done.”
