Premier League side Burnley are reportedly keen on the services of Leeds United backup goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
A number of Leeds United players have been reportedly attracting the interest of other clubs during this summer transfer window from Scotland’s top-tier to England’s top-tier.
Some players have even attracted the interest of those in the same division as Marcelo Bielsa’s men, and in Pontus Jansson’s case, actually made a surprise switch to Brentford.
Another name on the transfer wishlist of other clubs is Burnley wanting to sign Leeds’ back-up goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell this summer.
The Mirror have claimed that Sean Dyche’s side would want Peacock-Farrell to be their number two behind Nick Pope, with Tom Heaton and Joe Hart seemingly free to leave.
The name that should stand out for Leeds fans should be that of 75-cap England international and two-time Premier League winner, Hart.
If Leeds are in a situation where they lose their academy product to the Premier League club than they should strike a deal that involves Hart coming to Elland Road.
Of course, the deal would have to favour Burnley given Hart’s standing, but this surely is a great chance for Leeds to pounce and sign the highly-experienced man.
Albeit he is still young, Peacock-Farrell did enjoy an indifferent campaign last time out as he was dethroned from the starting XI by January signing and former Real Madrid man Kiko Casilla.
But he didn’t help himself either because he too enjoyed a bit of a nightmare ending, especially during that infamous play-off semi-final game against Derby County.
Either way, the goalkeeping area still isn’t a position that is filling the supporters with confidence, as a player like Hart, who needs to get his career back on track, can make that position his own.
