Leeds United striker Moise Kroma has headed to Premier League club Burnley for a trial, according to a club insider.
Lufcyouth, an ever-reliable source of information regarding Leeds’ development squads, claimed on their Twitter account on Thursday that Kroma, 17, has left Elland Road for Burnley to run the role over him.
Good luck to #lufc u18 striker Moise Kroma who is on trial with Burnley u23s

Kroma was born in Ivory Coast and signed scholarship terms with the Whites in 2016 alongside the likes of Liam Kitching and Bobby Kamwa.
The teenage centre-forward has been a regular in the Under-18s side and now appears to have done enough to merit interest from Premier League high-flyers Burnley, who are seventh in the table and are hoping for a spot in the Europa League next season.
It is understood that Kroma’s trial is with the Clarets’ Under-23s side, which is a massive step up for the young striker.
Football Insider verdict
It’s a shame that some of Leeds’ promising young talent is being picked off by Premier League clubs but that is the way it is nowadays. Kroma was clearly a gifted young player and it may be that his deal was due to expire in the summer which is why he has been allowed to go on trial at Turf Moor. It’s way too soon to tell if the Ivorian forward will be a hit in the future, but judging by the talents that Leeds’ academy has developed over the years then he there’s a good chance he will have a decent career.
