The Clarets are one of a number of Championship clubs tracking Leeds 25 year old, midfielder Neil Kilkenny.

Kilkenny is an English-born Australian footballer with 8 full caps to his name for Australia.

Leeds announced on their official website in late May that Kilkenny had failed to respond to the club’s offer of a new contract and that he would most likely be leaving the club. He is now out of contract at Elland Road

The news seems to have stirred a number of Championship clubs into action.

Burnley are one such club apparantly looking at the former Birmingham City player along with Hull City, Nottingham Forest, Ipswich Town and Bristol City.

The player is currently on international duty and played for Australia in their 3-0 win over New Zealand on Sunday being set to also feature in Tuesday’s international against Serbia.

Once he returns to these shores, Kilkenny will have a lot of thinking to do and will have to decide which club may suit him best.

Kilkenny signed for Leeds United (then a League 1 club)in January 2008 initially on an emergency loan before completing a permanent transfer the following week.

He signed a three-and-a-half year permanent contract for a fee of £150,000.
