Burnley have made an approach for Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny, according to Football Insider.

Kenny only played nine times last season in the Premier League and boss Marco Silva is keen to send the 22-year-old out on loan to build his experience.

The Toffees have just Seamus Coleman and Kenny as their two right-back options – loaning Kenny out could result in a new right-back arriving at Goodison Park.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche wants to add Kenny to the ranks to provide competition for Matt Lowton and Phil Bardsley.

Good move for Everton?

This is a good move for the Toffees. Kenny is still only 22-years-old and will improve if he is given more experience elsewhere. He only played nine games in the league last term and the departure will allow Marco Silva to bring in a defender that can provide stiff competition for Seamus Coleman. The move makes sense for both clubs and Burnley will benefit from Kenny’s youthful energy. Kenny will hopefully gain vital experience and game-time if the deal materialises.

Likely to happen?

Marco Silva is keen on sending Kenny out to gain more experience. With that in mind, it’s likely that he will depart this summer and with Burnley showing an interest at such an early stage they are clearly very eager. Everton will be wanting to add another right-back to their squad this summer who has the ability to make an impact. They have been linked with Thomas Meunier recently and if they do make a move for the Paris Saint-Germain defender it will become almost inevitable that Kenny will move on in at least temporarily.
