Leeds must offload Tyler Roberts amid Phil Hay reveal

Leeds United must make a ruthless call on Tyler Roberts this summer amid Gabby Agbonlahor’s verdict on the forward.

What’s the story?

Amid The Athletic’s Phil Hay revealing that the Wales international will be out for the rest of the season through injury, former Premier League striker Agbonlahor has now claimed that it could be the end for his career at Elland Road.

He said: “First of all, it’s a shame with his injury. But he’s not a Premier League player. Sometimes when you come to the big league you find your level and the Premier League is not his level. I’m sure next season he’ll be in the Championship.”

Radrizzani won’t be happy

Towards the end of the January transfer window, Hay mooted the possibility of a loan move, suggesting that it would take him “out of the firing line”.

It was telling that towards the end of Marcelo Bielsa’s reignat the club, the £7.2m-rated Roberts saw his game-time for the Yorkshire club become increasingly limited, playing just over 100 minutes of Premier League football in the past seven top-flight games.

Earning a reported £45k-a-week, the forward just hasn’t shown anywhere near the kind of form that would justify the Whites paying him that sort of money.

To put that into context, Joe Gelhardt earns less than half that amount but has proven in the little game-time he’s been given that he can be a real threat for Leeds going forward.

With just nine goals and ten assists in a whopping 108 games of football for the club, Roberts’ record is dismal to say the least.

Dubbed as “shocking” by Agbonlahor, it’s high-time the Whites moved on from the under-par Welshman.

Can you beat this impossible Leeds quiz!?

Given Andrea Radrizzani will be keeping an even closer eye on the finances this summer depending on whether Leeds stay in the Premier League or not, getting rid of Roberts’ contract would save some a decent chunk of money.

Keeping someone as poor as the 23-year-old at Elland Road surely won’t keep him happy.

Meanwhile, Tottenham have been handed a boost in their chase for this star…
