Leeds United supporters may exhale a sigh of relief as the speculation of an Oli McBurnie transfer was ‘laughed off.’

Leeds United have been quite busy in the summer transfer window, which has unfortunately resulted in players departing Elland Road.

Senior players such as Robin Koch, Max Wober, Marc Roca, Brenden Aaronson, and Rasmus Kristensen have all departed on loan, while star striker Rodrigo has left permanently.

Daniel Farke, the club’s new manager, has done his best to replace those who have left, bringing in Karl Darlow, Ethan Ampadu, Sam Bryam, and Joe Rodon this summer.

After the club’s dismal start to the season, Whites fans will be hoping that those four are joined by one or two more new faces.

Recent reports on social media suggested that Sheffield United striker Oli McBurnie could be next in line at Elland Road, but his manager Paul Heckingbottom‘s response strongly suggests that the Scotland international is staying around.

Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom hopes the club can open contract talks with striker Oli McBurnie after laughing off speculation linking him to Leeds,” Sky Sports reports.

The Elland Road club don’t have many choices in that department, but there is hope that Patrick Bamford can overcome his injury problems and become a regular hitman in the coming months.

He can be supported by Georginio Rutter and Mateo Joseph, so there isn’t much reason to bring McBurnie in this summer.

Heckingbottom‘s decision should come as a comfort to Whites fans, as McBurnie‘s signature would not be a very positive statement of purpose from Farke.
