Premier League pair Brighton and Crystal Palace are also interested in Kenny, who has fallen down the pecking order at Goodison Park following the return to fitness of Seamus Coleman. At this stage of his career Kenny, under contract until 2022, needs to be playing regular football and while a long-term future at Goodison hasn’t been ruled out, a temporary move away could kick-start his senior career.
Burnley are also said to be in the hunt for Kenny with manager Sean Dyche looking to strengthen his side’s defence after a 15th-placed Premier League finish last term.
