Leicester City failed with numerous bids in the summer, leading to reports Keane handed in a transfer request to try and force a move away from Turf Moor.

However such rumours appear to be wide of the mark after the defender insisted he is happy with the Clarets and is not disappointed that a move failed to go through.

Chelsea are now being linked with a £25million January swoop, and although he is happy at Burnley, Keane has revealed he does want to play at the highest level at some point.

“It’s flattering when teams like Leicester come in but I am really happy here,” Keane said. “The fans have been brilliant with me here, as have the manager and players. It’s great when teams like that come in but I am quite happy.

“I won’t be looking at Leicester in the Champions League thinking: ‘That could have been me’ because I tend to think what will be, will be.

“Hopefully at some time in the future I will get to that level anyway. Leicester have done brilliantly and I will be supporting them because I was there on loan [in 2012-13] but I’m not disappointed I am not there.”
