Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa wanted Matej Vydra’s, but his move to Elland Road fell through over a disagreement in personal terms.
Matej Vydra may be regretting not taking his chance to join Leeds United now, after what has been a highly disappointing start at Burnley.
Vydra was demanding more money than Leeds were willing to pay, which left Burnley free to swoop.
Since moving to Turf Moore things have not gone to plan for the Czech Republic international though.
Vydra has only made three Premier League starts all season, with Sean Dyche favouring other options.
Burnley have struggled badly this term, and look to be in a relegation battle, while Leeds have been in scintillating form.
It is fair to say that Vydra would have been Leeds’ main man up top had he have signed on at Elland Road.
Vydra would have offered Leeds pace and energy up-front, as well as a clinical finish.
And he may be regretting not taking his chance to be spearheading Marcelo Bielsa’s promotion chasing Whites rather than sitting on the bench at Burnley now.
