Leeds United fans are excited by potential deadline day deal for Roberts

As reported by The Express, Leeds United are pursuing a deadline day deal for West Bromwich Albion forward Tyler Roberts.

The paper say that the club are in advanced talks to bring him to Elland Road and that he could complete a medical and sign before tonight’s 11pm deadline.

The deal is reported to be worth around £2.5m, rising to £4m.

Thomas Christiansen’s side are still chasing a play-off place in the second-tier but could do with adding some attacking firepower to their squad, with most of the teams above them having scored more goals so far this season.

Roberts, who has only just turned 19, has spent the first half of this term on loan at League One side Walsall, scoring five goals and providing four assists in 19 appearances.

Given his age and potential, Leeds fans are excited by the signing, believing he’ll prove to be an excellent acquisition in the months and years to come.
