Report: Burnley could move for Leeds goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Premier League club Burnley could reportedly turn attention to Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

According to the Mirror, the Clarets may chase the 22-year-old to become their backup option next season at Turf Moor.

It is understood that Burnley could lose Tom Heaton if Aston Villa reignite interest in him and he’s likely to exit the top-flight club.

The report details that Burnley will promote Nick Pope to their number one role and want Peacock-Farrell as his understudy, with Joe Hart likely to depart.

Peacock-Farrell started last season as the first-choice goalkeeper at Elland Road, but he ended up losing it to January signing Kiko Casilla.


He’s a young shot-stopper that is a Northern Ireland international and has a lot of potential, which has been enough to attract interest from Burnley.

TBR’s View:

Peacock-Farrell has shown in patches that he’s ready for the Leeds first-team and it would be a blow to lose him during the summer.

He should stick it out with the Yorkshire giants for the upcoming campaign and surely has a better chance of more regular first-team football if he stays where he is, rather than go to compete with Pope at Burnley.

Marcelo Bielsa knows that Peacock-Farrell is a talent that has performed in the Championship before, but he just needs to find some consistency and also grab any chance that comes.
