Leeds United ready to allow Tyler Roberts leave Elland Road as several clubs circle
Several Championship clubs including Queens Park Rangers, Hull City and Birmingham are keen to sign Leeds United forward Tyler Roberts on loan, according to The Daily Mail.
The newspaper reported on their online edition on 2 July that Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town have also joined the race to sign the “skilful” player.
Initially, it was thought that the 23-year-old won’t be allowed to leave, but Leeds seem to have changed their plans. They are ready to let him go out on loan with view to a permanent deal next summer.
It seems Roberts’ days at Elland Road are coming to an end.
He is a brilliant player with fantastic technical abilities but inconsistency is the only demon that has prevented him from reaching the dizzy heights many expected him to reach.
Marcelo Bielsa kept immense faith in him, even though he didn’t always produce his best form.
This summer, there is a rebuilding phase going on at Elland Road under Jesse Marsch, with three signings being made already.
The Whites are expected to make more additions going forward, especially if Raphinha leaves, with bolstering the attacking areas being one of their priorities.
In that case, chances are high that Roberts will further drop down the pecking order.
It makes sense that he should be allowed to go out on loan where he can enjoy his game. However, the club are also willing to let him go out permanently, which suggests that maybe he is not in Jesse Marsch’s long-term plans.
In other Leeds United news, we could be about to receive a last-gasp £60million offer for Raphinha which could hijack Chelsea’s advances.
