Leeds have been linked with Swansea striker Oli McBurnie ahead of a re-building job in the summer. The Scottish striker is very highly rated by the Welsh club and has had his taste of Premier League action this season before he was signed by Paul Heckingbottom at Barnsley.
He had only been there a matter of days before Heckingbottom left for Leeds United but that hasn’t stopped the lanky Scottish striker from making an impact. He has scored in most of his games with Barnsley so far including a wonderful run and finish on his debut in the South Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday. He most recently scored away at Cardiff during the week and the obvious link is that Heckingbottom clearly rates the player having signed him at Barnsley so recently. I think what’s become apparent is that we don’t actually need to sign every player on a long-term deal, loans do work and that has been proved with the likes of Wolves and Cardiff this season, and painfully us last season.
Andrea Radrizzani has some job on his hands this summer after making a real mess of the recruitment this season, without directly doing it he has facilitated the situation for Victor Orta, a man under some serious pressure at the moment. Pierre-Michel Lasogga will probably head back to Hamburg after his loan and that only leaves Caleb Ekuban who has no goals to his name in the league, and Tyler Roberts who arrived and was injured in training. Kemar Roofe is the other option, ten league goals to his name but his form very up and down this season. McBurnie would certainly add goals to the side.
