The Burnley Express' sister paper the Yorkshire Evening Post reports that the Whites have knocked back an opening gambit for the 25-year-old New Zealand captain, who hit 30 goals for Leeds last season.

Leeds are thought to want in excess of the £15m Middlesbrough paid Nottingham Forest for Britt Assombalonga, who was a Burnley target earlier in the transfer window.

The Clarets are hunting a replacement for Andre Gray, who joined Watford for £18m on Wednesday.
