Leeds: Whites to be on alert for Charlie Taylor

Leeds: Whites to be on alert for Charlie Taylor - Leeds United News

Burnley could make Charlie Taylor available for transfer with Leeds United admirers of the left-back, according to Alan Nixon.

The Lowdown: Leeds eyeing a left-back?

The Whites are on the search for a new left-back this summer following an injury to Junior Firpo in pre-season.

Jesse Marsch has had to use centre-back Pascal Struijk at full-back in the two opening Premier League fixtures, with Leeds picking up a respectable four points.

A new forward also appears on the agenda, but it looks as if the Whites are on alert when it comes to a potential move for former full-back Taylor.

The Latest: Nixon’s claim

MOT Leeds News relayed a Burnley transfer update from Nixon’s Patreon account on Sunday.

The reliable journalist said that the Clarets could make Taylor available for transfer ‘before the window shuts’, saying that it would ‘alert Premier League admirers like Leeds United’.

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

The 28-year-old left Leeds for Burnley back in 2017, but it looks as if roles could be reversed five years on with a potential Elland Road return.

Taylor back at Elland Road?

Yes, no brainer!

Yes, no brainer!

Not too bothered!

Not too bothered!

The left-back has gained plenty of Premier League experience during his time at Turf Moor, and has even begun the new season playing as a centre-back under Vincent Kompany, showing his versatility.

He could be the perfect signing to challenge Firpo when he returns from injury, and would give Marsch another solid defensive option, so this could be one to watch closely.
