A lot can be said for a striker who can grab goals in a relegation threatened side.
One player to out perform his entire squad is young Barnsley forward Oliver McBurnie.
The on loan striker has now bagged seven goals in twelve Championship games and has been the lynchpin in Barnsley’s relegation dogfight.
McBurnie could be set for a second stint in the Championship next season and a potential suitor for the forward is none other than Leeds United.
The Whites could be set to make a move for the striker, who has started to gain plaudits for his pace and ability to hit the back of the net, something the Leeds strikers could do with learning.
The 21-year old is set to be out of contract in the summer and if his parent club Swansea have not yet offered a deal, it’s unlikely they will.
The pull of joining Leeds is still large in English football and the potential of a starting spot could lure McBurnie to join a head coach that trusted him enough to sign him on loan in January, Paul Heckingbottom.
If Heckingbottom was the man to bring him in, it’s likely he knows how to get the best out of the Scottish forward and this could be a recipe for success at Elland Road.
