Burnley and Middlesbrough are preparing bids for Leeds left-back Charlie Taylor, according to a report.
The Guardian claim that the newly promoted sides are considering bids for the former England Under-19 international.
As reported on Football Insider, the Yorkshire giants have slapped a £5million price-tag on the Leeds fans player of the year and it is understood that both clubs are willing to meet their demands.
It is claimed that West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle are also monitoring the situation of the 22-year-old Leeds man.
The left-back has a year left on his contract, and his suitors will be looking to use that to their advantage as they try to get the best deal for their clubs.
Controversial chairman Massimo Cellino has spoken publicly about Taylor’s contract situation, stating that renewing his current deal could be difficult. The former Fleetwood loanee has the same agent as West Ham and former Leeds right-back Sam Byram.
The left-sided player was a stand out performer in the second tier during the 2015-16 season as he claimed the club’s player of the year award.
The York-born player starred in 43 appearances for the Whites in the recently completed season scoring one goal and providing seven assists from his full-back position.
In other Leeds news, Garry Monk has made prolific forward Kemar Roofe his sixth Whites recruit of the summer.
