With Leeds bid to sign PL goal machine underway, fans react to his latest red-hot display

On-loan Barnsley striker Oliver McBurnie continued his red-hot form with another Championship goal on Tuesday night – and Leeds United fans took to Twitter to urge their club to sign him next season.

As revealed by Football Insider, United have identified the Swansea City prolific forward as one of their top summer targets and a bid to sign him is underway.

The 21-year-old striker joined Barnsley in the January window on loan from Swansea until the end of the season, but his future is up in the air as he contract with the Premier League outfit expires in the summer.

He has made a stunning impact at Oakwell since his arrival, with his strike in their 1-1 draw against Norwich City on Tuesday taking his haul for Paul Heckingbottom’s former side to six in eight matches.

The Scotsman is a centre-forward by trade, but has been used on the left flank by Barnsley and has responded with a glut of goals.
