Leeds United ace remains a Premier League transfer target

Premier League side Burnley are keeping close tabs on Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich, according to reports from Football Insider.

The Polish international was an ever-present for Marcelo Bielsa’s side last season, and has continued to be a hugely important player for the Whites in their push for promotion this time around.

The 29-year-old scored 10 goals and produced nine assists from attacking midfield last term, as Leeds narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs.

Having recently tied Kalvin Phillips down to a new five-year deal at Elland Road, Leeds are said to be keen on extending the contracts of Klich, as well as defender Stuart Dallas.

Burnley were believed to be keen on a move for Klich in the summer, and Football Insider now claim that the Clarets are keeping close tabs on the midfielder ahead of a potential move in January.

The report claims that Sean Dyche’s side are set to monitor Klich’s performances closely over the next few months, with his current deal at Elland Road set to expire at the end of this season.

Leeds return to league action against Barnsley this weekend, with the Whites hoping to get back to winning ways after a 1-0 home defeat to Swansea City before the international break.

The Verdict

I would be surprised to see Klich snub a new contract from Leeds and sign for Burnley instead.

The Clarets may be playing in the Premier League, but it would really be a step-up for the 29-year-old?

At this rate, Leeds may well be joining Burnley in the top-flight next season, and whilst he’s playing his football under Bielsa, why would he want to leave?

He is a very important player for Leeds, and he should be rewarded with a new deal sooner rather than later.
