Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa could be rewarded for asking Burnley about the possibility of a double-deal which could suit all parties.

Leeds United should consider making a double move for Joe Hart and Matej Vydra at Burnley this summer.

Burnley are set to offload Hart, according to the Daily Mail, and Leeds could present him with an opportunity to end his woes.

Hart has struggled for game time at three Premier League clubs over the past three years, and may have to drop down the divisions now.

 

Leeds only signed Kiko Casilla in January, but his shaky display saw big question marks arise about the Spaniard.

Hart could be a more solid option for Leeds, and he would provide them with some crucial experience and leadership, in highly pressurised games.

Hart has won every domestic trophy in England and played for his country in multiple tournaments, and that guidance could be crucial for Leeds’ squad.

The Whites could also be rewarded by rekindling their interest in Vydra.

Leeds almost signed Vydra last summer, as reported by the Daily Mail, but they couldn’t quite get a deal over the line.

The Czech Republic international ultimately ended up at Burnley, but the move hasn’t worked out as hoped.

Sean Dyche may now be open to offers for Vydra, and he could be exactly what Leeds are looking for.

Vydra has scored over 20 goals in the Championship in a season twice over his career so far, and if Leeds had a striker that prolific this time around they surely would have earned promotion.

Marcelo Bielsa bemoaned his side’s lack of precision when presented with chances towards the end of the season, but Vydra’s arrival would surely end their search for a predatory striker.

And Leeds should be knocking on Burnley’s door to do a double deal this summer.
