Everton’s summer signing Michael Kean believed that Goodison Park is the perfect place for him to develop his game and he has made right decision to snub Liverpool and Man Utd.
After impressing for Sean Dyche’s side last season the 24-year-old England international midfielder has attracted interest from hosts of the European club including their Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester Utd.
Keane emerged as a target for Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho earlier in the summer, but Ronald Koeman has convinced him to sign for Goodison Park’s side.
Keane has revealed interest from Premier League giants, however, named the reason why he agreed to a move to Goodison Park.
‘There was interest definitely, but I thought Everton was the right place for me to come, develop and take myself to that next level,’ Keane told Sky Sports.
‘I didn’t want to go anywhere and not play and I’ve got to fight for my place here. There’s a lot of good centre-halves, but I feel like I’ve got a good chance if I stay fit and perform well.
‘There was definite interest, but I think Everton is the perfect club.’
With Liverpool are in need for defensive reinforcements Keane could be an ideal addition for their back line, but now they are fully focused on keeping Coutinho in the team and signing a Virgil van Dijk from Southampton.
