Leeds might return for Daniel James, but Oliver McBurnie is worth a punt too

The Scotland international has been in red hot form this season at the Liberty Stadium.

During the January transfer window, Leeds United desperately tried to do a deal for Swansea City’s highly-rated Daniel James.

The winger was all set to sign for the Elland Road outfit but at the eleventh hour, the plans were scuppered.

The Mirror reported that the Swans had changed their mind about doing business with their Championship rivals.

It is unclear at this stage whether Leeds will want to sign him during the summer.

The Whites would perhaps be wiser to cast their eyes towards another Swansea performer instead. One who was actually born in Leeds.

Oliver McBurnie has been in stunning form this season.

The 22-year-old has bagged 18 goals in all competitions and four assists, making him one of the most lethal marksmen in the Championship.


The prolific talisman has already showcased to Leeds what he can do by netting three times against them this season.

With Swans boss Graham Potter likely to need to raise funds in the summer, the chances of him keeping McBurnie look slim.

If Leeds do get promoted, the striker could be well worth a look.

Okay, so he didn’t do a deal during his 16 top-flight appearances, but he has developed as a player since then.

Scotland international McBurnie has proved that he knows where the back of the net is and he probably wouldn’t cost Leeds a fortune.

It remains to be seen whether they will return for James. They should, however, definitely consider McBurnie.
