Leeds duo 'targeted by Burnley'

16th July 2019, 10:33 by Simon Barlow

Burnley are reportedly keen to take Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe and midfielder Mateusz Klich to Turf Moor.

Poland international Klich, who scored 10 goals and laid on nine assists for Leeds last term, only has one year left on his contract at Elland Road.

The Sun claim Burnley are interested in the 29-year-old but there is a split in the camp about how much to offer for him.

Meanwhile Football Insider claims that the Clarets are interested in signing both Klich and Roofe.

The 26-year-old striker has been previously linked with a move to Rangers and it appears Premier League interest is building in the ex-Oxford United hitman.

But, having signed Jay Rodriguez from West Brom last week, it remains to be seen if Burnley would push the boat out for Roofe, who scored 15 goals in his 34 Championship appearances for Leeds last season.
