With Leeds United target Aden Flint completing his move from Middlesbrough to fellow Championship promotion hopefuls Cardiff City on Friday afternoon, here are three alternatives Leeds United could look at this summer.

With Lewis Dunk, Shane Duffy, Leon Balogun and now highly-rated defender Matt Clarke already on the book the Seagulls are already stacked at the back and could be prepared to let Burn go on a permanent basis.

Standing at 6 feet and 7 inches tall Burn is an aerial threat in both boxes just like Flint and would be available for a much cheaper price.
