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.
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.
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.
