Leeds United transfer news: Whites plot transfer raid for £35m-rated midfield machine

Leeds United will look to pick up another three points this weekend, when they travel to take on Sean Dyche's Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

The last time the two sides met, back in late December last year, Patrick Bamford's early penalty saw his side claim a 1-0 win at Elland Road.

A win for the Whites could see them leapfrog Arsenal into ninth place, with just three matches of the 2020/21 campaign left to play.

Discussing plans for fans to return to stadiums of the final day of the season, Leeds CEO Angus Kinnear was keen to lower supporter expectations for the visit of West Brom.

He claimed: “I know we have all missed the camaraderie and exhilaration of the fortnightly pilgrimage to LS11, but nobody has missed it more than the players and there is a sense of excitement in the dressing room around what we might be able to achieve next season when Premier League opposition have to contend with the Elland Road cauldron for the first time.

“However, supporters should recognise that the West Brom matchday will be a poor imitation of the experience we all love. With a 'red zone' in operation in the West Stand for the players and officials, available capacity will be well below the 25 per cent target.

“Supporters who do attend will then be subjected to a regime of questionnaires, tests and scans which mercifully falls just short of a full body cavity search.”
