Peaock-Farrell emerges as Burnley target

Burnley could move for Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell if either Joe Hart or Tom Heaton depart.

The Clarets are believed to be actively looking to offload Hart after just one season at Turf Moor.

Heaton is rated as a target for newly-promoted Aston Villa and although manager Sean Dyche would like to keep hold of the England international he could still move on if an acceptable bid is received.

If both leave, it would leave Nick Pope as their only senior goalkeeper and as such Dyche would need to bring in at least one new shot-stopper this summer – and The Mirror says Peacock-Farrell is an option.

The 22-year-old managed 28 Championship appearances for Leeds last year but lost his starting spot to Kiko Casilla in the latter half of the campaign and is believed to be open to a summer move.
