Leeds United transfer news: Whites target agrees switch, £30m spending war in pipeline

Leeds United will be looking to extend their recent purple patch to just one defeat in nine when they come up against Burnley in Saturday’s early kick-off.

The Whites have looked much more defensively solid in recent weeks, and have picked up some impressive results during that spell – not least including last weekend’s 3-1 victory over Tottenham at Elland Road.

Burnley always have the potential to be a thorn in anybody’s side, however, and that’s a point that has been emphasised by pundit David Prutton.

Writing in a column for the Yorkshire Evening Post, he said: “Leeds have done a wonderful job this season of consolidation and now they come up against a Burnley side who have shown how to stay in the Premier League by hook or by crook, playing the way that they play which suits them.

“Clarets boss Sean Dyche will know exactly how to beat Leeds but it’s one thing knowing and another thing implementing it.

“They are coming up against a Leeds United side that I would sincerely hope has the same motivation to turn Burnley over as to turn Spurs over and Manchester City over and that motivation has never been questioned at all.

“That year on year improvement comes in not dropping points against the big sides but also taking points off teams that would be in and around you.

“What we have seen from Burnley with the things at the manager’s disposal under Sean is a man who knows how to operate with his club within the Premier League.”
