As last week came to a close and most Leeds United fans had their eyes on friendly teamsheets and whether or not Kalvin Phillips would feature against York City or Guiseley Town, there was an interesting story beginning to do the rounds about young goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

“I Want To Be Here” – Young Leeds Star Looking To Prove His Worth In 2019/20

Admittedly the report stems from The Mirror, but they were claiming that should Aston Villa succeed in their chase for Tom Heaton, Burnley manager Sean Dyche will turn his attentions to BPF.

The suggestion is Dyche wants our 22-year-old to serve as backup to Nick Pope who would serve as their number 1, but firm details are thin on the ground.

Given the summer BPF has had with interviews and the mixed feelings in the fanbase on the back of his words, this certainly set tongues wagging on social media as you’d expect, but for me I wouldn’t put too much stock in it at this stage.

  • Ive heard from his girlfriend that they have already seen a lovely place in manchester in prep for his move to burnley… With him not going to Aus it definately looks like he wants to leave . Only a matter of time , shame as i think if wed stuck with him last season we would of gone up! Kiko cost us dear…

    • The squad development does raise eyebrows. I’m just not sure (finances aside, unless the criticism this summer has got to him) that Burnley would be a step up given he’d be 2/3rd fiddle. As you say, he took a lot of unfair flack last season (and this summer with interviews) but Kiko’s rush of blood’s outweighed BPF’s development errors for me.
