The Irish Mirror reports that Keane was involved in an altercation with Harry Arter and Jon Walters in the summer.
O’Neill told the Mirror: “I’m not denying there hasn’t been altercations. But the situation has definitely been defused and it’s just part of things.
“Roy has been a big supporter of Jon, for instance, as he is particularly close to one of the Burnley coaching staff and is always keeping Jon’s end up.
“But I can’t say there wasn’t an altercation – absolutely.”
