Leeds United are not interested in selling Kemar Roofe even though the forward is attracting a lot of interest from fellow Championship sides.
The Yorkshire Evening Post revealed that whilst West Brom and Sheffield United were considering making a move for the 25-year old, the Whites are not interested in offers for the player.

Roofe was Leeds’ top scorer last season, hitting 14 goals in all competitions and given their lack of options up top currently, he could play a big part in upcoming pre-season games, providing him with a chance to impress.
Deals for Abel Hernandez and Matej Vydra have stalled in recent weeks, leaving Bielsa without a proven, recognised Championship striker.
Therefore, some fans were pleased to see that Roofe will be staying, although others still feel they should be aiming for better as he hasn’t been a player that has always been appreciated by supporters since joining the club.
Here’s what eight fans had to say about this news on twitter…
Can’t believe the stick Roofe gets from some. Top scorer – regularly played out of position.
He’s a clever player and will do well in Bielsa’s system
