Leeds United have officially announced that 22 year-old Northern Ireland goalkeeper Bailey-Peacock Farrell has left the club to join Burnley.

Per the club’s official website:

Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell has today joined Premier League side Burnley for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old who came through the ranks with the Leeds United Academy went on to make 41 first team appearances for the Whites.

We wish Bailey the best of luck for the future.

Peacock-Farrell was one of the lone bright spots during Paul Heckingbottom tenure at Leeds, and while he looked like he might be the goalkeeper of the future, it didn’t seem to work out for him last season. He never was extremely comfortable playing with the ball at his feet, and he’s still young enough to work on aspects of his game that were lacking during his time at Leeds.

He was replaced in the January transfer window by former Real Madrid keeper Kiko Casilla, so move for him isn’t especially shocking, especially with young keeper Kamil Miazek and Will Huffer knocking on the door. Hopefully he puts it all together at Burnley and does well, either on loan or with the first team, learning under starting keeper Nick Pope.
