‘Forgotten’, ‘Thanks for everything’ – These Leeds United fans offer split reaction to Roofe message

Kemar Roofe has sent a message to Leeds United fans after joining Anderlecht, which has drawn a mixed reaction from supporters.

The 26-year-old made the switch yesterday and signed a three-year deal with the Belgian club.

Roofe has been an important player for the Whites over the past two years, top-scoring with 29 goals in that period.

The striker arrived at Elland Road from Oxford United in July 2016 and has scored 33 goals in 122  appearances since.

Roofe had just one year left on his deal at Leeds and had reportedly attracted the attention of multiple clubs this summer.

Leeds are understood to have tabled a new contract offer for Roofe earlier this summer, with Victor Orta suggesting that he believed he would stay.

After sealing his move to Anderlecht, the striker posted a message to Leeds fans on his Instagram.

He thanked the club for “an incredible three years” and added: “Leeds will always have a place in my heart”.

Roofe’s exit leaves Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts as the only options in Marcelo Bielsa’s senior squad.
