Report: Everton approached by Burnley about Jonjoe Kenny

Everton face a decision when it comes to the future of Jonjoe Kenny, with the Daily Mail claiming Burnley have approached the Toffees about a potential deal.

Kenny, 23, has found himself down the pecking order this season at Goodison Park, starting just the one game and making just three minor substitute appearances as both Seamus Coleman and Ben Godfrey have kept him out.

The full-back may have expected more game time this term after a successful spell with Schalke last season which yielded more than 30 Bundesliga appearances for Kenny.

However, Ancelotti has found a successful formula without the 23-year-old, and Burnley are now said to be sniffing.

Burnley are armed with fresh cash following their takeover and Sean Dyche is a known fan of Kenny, having asked about him last year as well with no success.

It is believed the Clarets are looking at a permanent deal, although it remains to be seen if Everton are indeed open to the sale of Kenny.

It’s a shame on a personal level for Kenny this but he and nobody else can really argue with Carlo Ancelotti’s decision making this season.

But at 23, Kenny needs to now kick on, especially after such a fine loan spell in Germany last year.

Burnley could be a good move, too. A well established Premier League club with a hard working manager could be just what the full-back needs to get his Premier League career firmly on track.
