Charlie Taylor 'close to completing Burnley move'

A report claims that Charlie Taylor is on the brink of finalising his switch to Burnley, with the Premier League club expected to hand over in the region of £4m.

Full-back Charlie Taylor will reportedly join Burnley in the coming days after turning down a three-year contract at Leeds United.

The 23-year-old is now officially out of contract at Elland Road after being a part of the Whites' setup for the past 14 years.

Leeds can still expect a healthy compensation fee for the defender, though, with Burnley said to be willing to offer £4m for a player that was nurtured in United's youth ranks before going on to make over 100 senior appearances.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Standard, Taylor knocked back the offer of a new deal and is now close to finalising a switch to the Clarets, with a transfer potentially being wrapped up this weekend.

West Bromwich Albion had also been tipped to make a move for Taylor, but were thought to have been put off by a possible tribunal to determine his price.

Charlie Taylor of Leeds United runs with the ball during the pre season friendly match between York City and Leeds United at Bootham Crescent on July 15, 2015 in York, England.
