Burnley are inching closer towards a deal for Leeds United left back Charlie Taylor. The 23-year-old will be out of contract in a week’s time and Burnley want to use this chance to broker a deal for the youngster.

West Bromwich Albion have been in touch with the player but their failure to reach a contract with Leeds has now put Burnley in the front line. The Clarets are very keen to better their performance in the upcoming season and manager Sean Dyche has identified the youngster as one of his potential reinforcements.

Taylor refused to take up the opportunity to don his team’s jersey for a final time as Leeds had travelled to the DW Stadium to play a 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic in their final game of the season. Taylor’s reaction has anticipated a move for him and Burley have risen to the occasion to express their interest in the talented full back.

The Baggies have been trying to strike a deal with the Yorkshire giants but now have turned their back from the move. United might knock the door of the tribunal as players under 24 years are entitled to a fee irrespective of their contract situations.

Leeds have been demanding a fee in the range of £5m but Burnley are reluctant to pay heed to their valuation. Taylor was offered a contract extension but the player is unlikely to sign on the dotted line as he has been trying to force a move out from the Elland Road.

Leeds players are expected to gather at Thorp Arch as they kickstart their pre-season from Monday. They will be heading towards Austria to take part in a couple of games but manager Thomas Christiansen is still not sure whether he would be able to get Taylor on the flight to Austria or not.

Burnley have been chasing Hull City’s Andy Robertson but now have shifted their focus to Taylor. Taylor has been a success story for the Whites as the 23-year-old has been the preferred choice for Garry Monk throughout the season. He racked up 29 appearances in the Championship picking up four assists under his tally.

A very energetic and quick full back, he can be able to add the necessity width in the Burnley ranks. Fulfilling his wage demands would not be a problem for the club who are financially quite stable after getting a good chunk of money from the revised television rights.
