Left-back Charlie Taylor wants to quit Leeds after rejecting a new contract and is keen to join newly-promoted Burnley, according to a report.
The Mirror claim Premier League clubs West Brom, West Ham and Middlesbrough are also interested in signing the £6million-rated 22-year-old.
But it is said that Taylor would prefer to transfer to Turf Moor after snubbing a new deal at Elland Road.
Speaking to Radio Yorkshire, chief executive Ben Mansford said earlier this week Leeds’ Player of the Year is not prepared to renew his contract, despite having just 12 months remaining on his Elland Road deal.
The former Fleetwood loanee has the same agent as West Ham and former Leeds right-back Sam Byram.
Taylor has firmly established himself as Leeds’ first-choice left-back and made 42 appearances for the Whites last season, chipping in with seven assists.
Sean Dyche is keen on making additions to his Burnley side, after making just two signings this summer in Charlton duo Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Nick Pope.
West Ham though are desperate to bring in a left-back, after losing Aaron Cresswell to a long-term knee injury. Alexander Buttner, Wendell and Jose Enrique have also been linked with a move to the Olympic Stadium.
In other Leeds transfer news, Mansford has also had this to say on Leeds’ new signing Hadi Sacko.
