Matej Vydra Set to Leave Turf Moor In January Transfer Window
Leeds United are preparing to make a bid for Clarets striker as boss Sean Dyche clears Matej Vydra to leave the club in January to get more game time. Vydra moved to Turf Moor from Derby County last summer in an £11m move and has only made thirteen Premier League appearances last season, the Czech Republic International has only played four games so far this time round and is yet to start.
According to the Daily Mirror, Dyche realises the striker is unlikely to see his game time increase and is prepared to let him leave for a cut-price fee in January. The newspaper says that Dyche is willing to see a £7.5m deal go through with Leeds United who are said to be heavily interested in the striker. It is claimed that given Matej Vydra has experience in the Sky Bet Championship, the Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa wants to add the attacker to his squad in January as they look to mount a serious promotion push.
Vydra has played twenty-two games for Burnley since his move from the Rams, scoring two goals and assisting four others in that time. The Clarets make their return from the international break on Saturday when they play Watford at Vicarage Road in Premier League however Vydra will not be part of this weekends squad due to injury.
