Burnley are the new favourites with SkyBet to sign Leeds United left-back Charlie Taylor.

West Bromwich Albion had been leading the running since the season ended, with manager Tony Pulis admitting to the Express and Star that the Leeds defender was on the club's radar.

The Baggies have been unable to come to an agreement with Leeds over a fee for Taylor, whose contract is set to expire at the end of this month.

Leeds will be due a fee via a tribunal if no deal is reached by the end of the month, and Pulis made clear he was keen to avoid that scenario.

Now Sean Dyche's Burnley are seen as the club in pole position to do a deal.

On Thursday Burnley entered the betting market for Charlie Taylor, and were priced by SkyBet at 7/2.

Now their odds have shifted dramatically to be 1/4 on to sign the left-back.

West Brom have slid out down to 13/2, with Brighton and Hove Albion at 15/2.

Burnley were linked with a move for Charlie Taylor last summer, with The Mirror claiming last July that the Clarets were keen on the defender.

Taylor caused controversy at Leeds by refusing to play on the final week of the season and was fined two weeks wages by the club.
