Burnley sign defender Charlie Taylor on four-year deal

Taylor controversially refused to play in the Leeds United’s 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic on the final day of the Championship season, leaving then-manager Garry Monk unhappy with his conduct.

The White still pushed ahead with offering the full-back a two-year contract extension in the hope of fending off interest from West Bromwich Albion and Burnley.

Albion appeared to be at the front of the queue for his signature, only to pull out due to a concern over the compensation fee they would have to hand over to Leeds.

Following weeks of speculation Burnley have now got a transfer over the line, bringing an end to the Englishman’s 14-year stay at Elland Road.

A fee for the 23-year-old, who made 104 senior appearances for Leeds, has yet to be agreed between the two clubs.
