Middlesbrough could have the answer if Leeds’ Kemar Roofe nightmare becomes a reality



The Marcelo Bielsa revolution is set to go down as a truly iconic moment in the history of Leeds United with the club seemingly heading for promotion.

The Whites currently sit in second place, thanks to an impressive 1-0 win away to fellow promotion chasers Sheffield United last weekend, and look set to have their strongest push for a return to the top flight since their relegation in 2004.

A large part of the Argentinian’s success has come from his ability to get the very best out of the players in his squad, with the likes of Mateusz Klich and Pontus Jansson playing arguably the best football of their lives.

Kemar Roofe is another to have come on under the Argentinian, racking up an impressive tally of eight goals in 14 Championship appearances.

But with that success inevitably comes interest from higher up, with Premier League clubs keeping an eye on him.

Even if the worst were to happen, however, there is a ready-made replacement for him waiting at Middlesbrough.


Having moved to Middlesbrough in 2017 for £15million, it looks as though Britt Assombalonga’s frustrating time in the North East could well come to an end in the New Year.

The striker has never been hugely liked by Tony Pulis so it could open the door for a January move for Congolese forward.

And Elland Road could well be the destination.

The former Peterborough United and Nottingham Forest man has scored five goals in 17 appearances this season so clearly has the ability to find the back of the net.

He has 20 goals in 61 appearances in total for Boro and previously scored 30 Championship goals during a spell with Nottingham Forest.

His attitude has been questioned, but if there is one thing he guarantees, it is goals. Making him an ideal replacement for Roofe should he depart.
