Oliver McBurnie next club: On-loan striker attracting attention of over a dozen clubs

Thu, 26 April 2018, 12:52

Oliver McBurnie, currently on-loan at Barnsley from Premier League Swansea City, is attracting plenty of attention from Championship clubs ahead of the summer transfer window. Having impressed at Oakwell since moving to the club in January, the Scottish striker has bagged eight in 15 league matches, and previously made over 10 appearances for the Swans in the first half of the season.

What Are The Odds looks at the Oliver McBurnie next club odds market via BetVictor and analyses where the 21-year could end up next season.

Derby County are currently tipped as the favourites to snap up McBurnie next season with odds of 6/1 (7.00), and whether that will change depending on if the Rams get promoted or not will be worth watching until the season concludes. The striker looks unlikely to return into the Swans first team next season - unless they drop into the Championship themselves, which would almost surely give the striker the chance he’s wanted. Derby though look a good fit, having an older looking squad, McBurnie would offer a fresh impetus of youth that Gary Rowett’s side likely needs.

Intriguingly, two promotion candidates Fulham and Aston Villa are next in the market running with odds of 8/1 (9.00). McBurnie has obviously impressed while on-loan at Barnsley, who are right in the relegation fight and despite poor form, the striker has shone scoring important goals. Perhaps both clubs look at that and see that improving even more when he’s surrounded by better players - no disrespect to the Tykes.

Middlesbrough, Reading and Nottingham Forest are further back at 10/1 (11.0), while cubs such as Sheffield Wednesday and Preston are 12/1 (13.0).

After having many loan spells throughout his young career, it would seem that Oliver McBurnie’s next club could be the most important of them all. Similar to that of Harry Kane who also had a similar early part of his career - a club that will give him a long run of games, likely in the Championship looks to be the next best step for the Swans striker.
