Leeds United missed a golden opportunity to book their place in the Championship play-off final, as they fell to a 4-3 defeat on aggregate to Derby County.
It means that the Whites are set for another season in England’s second tier, which will certainly come as a frustration to much of the Elland Road faithful.
A summer of uncertainty is also likely, with a number of key players likely to be attracting interested from elsewhere after such an impressive season under Marcelo Bielsa.
Yorkshire Evening Post, Phil Hay spoke out on the future of Kemar Roofe, who has been one of the standout performers for the Whites in their promotion-chasing season.
going to be a question mark over him. Down to his last 12 months. Doesn’t have a new deal yet and would be due a substantial increase.

Roofe netted 15 goals for Leeds this season, which is impressive given that he missed a number of weeks through injury midway through this year’s campaign.
But how should Leeds fans be feeling about Roofe’s future at Elland Road?
“I’d be hugely concerned.
“Roofe certainly isn’t going to be short of offers in the summer after such an impressive season under Marcelo Bielsa’s guidance and I think he’s destined for a move to the Premier League.
“Whether that be with Leeds, I’m not so sure as they could have blown their best chance of winning promotion in the defeat to Derby in midweek.”
“They will be desperate for him to stay.
“Roofe has been by far Leeds’ most reliable attacker this season, and he has been badly missed when absent.
“There could be some worry about next season if his future is not resolved soon, particularly with the uncertainty around potential funding for the summer transfer window.”
“I think this is worrying news for Leeds fans.
“Roofe has been an important player for Leeds in the Championship this season, even though he struggled for form at times during the second-half of the season.
“I’m sure Leeds fans will be hoping he stays at Elland Road, as he will be a crucial player for the team next season.”
