With plenty of speculation swirling around Elland Road at this moment of time with the summer transfer window rumour mill in overdrive about potential departures, this weekend has seen a new Kemar Roofe claim but we can now add Mats Klich to the equation with the word Burnley.
With ongoing Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur links to 23-year-old lynchpin Kalvin Phillips, reports have now surfaced suggesting that manager Sean Dyche is keen on trying to do a deal for two more key players.
Everyone knows what Roofe brings to the table with the 26-year-old found the back of the net 15 times last year but Klich was also reborn under manager Marcelo Bielsa and the Poland international was an ever present in the Championship, scoring ten times and providing nine assists across all competitions.
The report leans heavily on the fact that both players are into the final 12 months of their deal, so hopefully it’s just typical rumour mill nonsense.
You’ve been reading too many Sunday papers. ????

Burnley after Roofe and Klich according to the papers, but why the hell would you leave Leeds to go to that tinpot club?

So this mornings joyous news is that Roofe and Klich are both “targets” for a prem club. The most irritating thing about it all is that neither have, to my knowledge, been offered a new contract. #LUFC

Is Burnley really a step up? The worst place to go, no one goes anywhere after Burnley, it’s like they fall into an abyss
