Leeds United face a nervous January transfer window after it emerged that Galatasaray are contemplating a move for Kemar Roofe, according to a report from CNN Turk.
The Turkish media outlet claim that Roofe has become one of their top targets, just days after the transfer window reopened.
The forward has been in excellent form this season, and already has 13 goals to his name in the Championship and he would have been confident of adding to that tally.
But Galatasaray’s interest will be concerning news for Leeds supporters, with Roofe potentially being tempted by the possibility of Champions League football on offer next season.
Leeds supporters are likely to be furious with Roofe if he is to leave the club for the Turkish side, just as they were with Harry Kewell when he made the bold decision to leave.
This anger stems from when two Leeds supporters were stabbed to death in their UEFA Cup semi-final in April 2000, which has seen a rivalry form between the two sides.
Although the move seems unlikely, there will be some concern amongst Leeds United supporters, that Roofe could be tempted to make the move to the Turkish giants.
If Leeds are to have any chance of gaining promotion this season, they will need to do everything they possibly can to hold onto their star man for the remainder of the season.
It seems unlikely this deal could happen.
Roofe is one of Leeds’ most important players this season and if they are to have any ambition of winning promotion to the Premier League, then they need to keep hold of him.
He has been their main outlet for goals, and without him, they would struggle to keep hold of top spot in the Championship table.
