Chris Burke: Transfer target for Leeds

Leeds chief Brian McDermott admitted earlier this week he tried to land a mystery winger on deadline day, only to see his price-tag end his interest in the player.

Clark has now confirmed he spoke to McDermott about Burke and he insists the Scotland international is happy to stay at St Andrew's, despite the interest from Leeds.

"I had a conversation with Brian on Sunday. He basically asked about Chris," said Clark.

"They (Leeds) said they were willing to do that deal, but thankfully Brian didn't come back and pursue it.

"Chris is 100 per cent happy and he's enjoying it here. He's never indicated to me that he has ever wanted to leave."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
