Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Leeds United must finally sell Tyler Roberts this summer

A number of players are facing the exit door at Leeds United this summer with influential players in the shape of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha nearing permanent departures.

However, there could still be other exits on the cards.

What’s the word?

Another player who could depart Elland Road in the coming days is Tyler Roberts.

Should Leeds sell Roberts?

Definitely!

Definitely!

No thanks!

No thanks!

The £7.2m-rated talent joined from West Brom as a teenager but it’s not quite happened for him in Yorkshire and thus, is now on the verge of leaving.

That’s according to the Yorkshire Evening Post who claim he’s set to seal a loan move away this week with both Hull City and QPR interested in securing his services for a year.

Time to go

A loan move will not really hurt any party involved but surely this is the summer where Leeds look to ship Roberts on permanently?

The Welshman has struggled for form and was presented with a wonderful opportunity to stake his claim last term in the absence of Patrick Bamford who spent large portions of the campaign on the treatment table.

What month did Marcelo Bielsa's tenure come to an unfortunate end?

Roberts couldn’t take his chance, scoring just twice in 27 outings across all competitions. He also only assisted one goal from a multitude of attacking roles.

His form the previous campaign under Marcelo Bielsa wasn’t very profitable either with Roberts finding the net just once in senior football.

With that in mind, it’s hardly a surprise that he once left the Argentine coach rather livid with his performances. As Leeds miraculously beat Manchester City in April 2021, Bielsa was left visibly frustrated by Roberts.

In just the seventh minute, Bielsa called Marcos Abad to the touchline so he could translate his instructions and then in the tenth minute, the club’s former manager slapped his knees in anger as Fernandinho ghosted past Roberts who was stood there like a statue.

Marsch has yet to really see the best of him either and on the evidence of the past two seasons, it doesn’t feel like the Wales international is cut out for Premier League life with Gabby Agbonlahor previously describing him as “shocking.”

Consequently, they should be looking to sell the player this summer, not merely loan him out to the Championship.
