Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be watching with intrigue about one of their latest transfer rumours as the side look to address their goalscoring efforts.
According to a report in the Scottish Sun, Swansea City’s Oliver McBurnie is keen to join his hometown club and leave the Welsh outfit. The striker has one year remaining on his current deal with the Premier League side, although he is thought to be ready to snub a new deal, as interest builds in him.
The 21-year-old is currently starring for Barnsley on a loan deal, has proved that he can compete in the Championship and would add some much-needed firepower to the Elland Road outfit. He has netted eight times in 13 appearances in the league since arriving in January.
The Scotland international could also spell the end for a number of Leeds’ frontmen, with the likes of Pierre-Michel Lasogga heading back to Germany, who have failed to live up to their early season expectations.
The Leeds fans in the Tavern will be hoping they can make a deal for the young talent and bring him to Elland Road as soon as possible, however, it could cost them a fair amount of money. McBurnie still has a year left on his deal at the Liberty Stadium and the Swans will be unlikely willing to let him leave for a small fee, making locals doubt what the club will do.
