Tyler Roberts may be a little concerned at recent Leeds transfer links, but must kick on: Opinion

Leeds United attacking midfielder Tyler Roberts may be a little concerned after recent transfer rumours.

With five matches to go, Leeds are currently second in the Championship table, one point ahead of third-placed Sheffield United in the race for automatic promotion.

It seems manager Marcelo Bielsa has already started planning ahead for next season in the top flight, with reports linking the club to an array of talented attacking midfield players.

TalkSPORT reported last month that the Whites are interested in signing QPR ace Luke Freeman, who has established himself as one of the stand-out players in the Championship, scoring seven league goals this season.

Football Insider have also reported recently that Leeds are interested in Wigan Athletic midfielder Nick Powell and Reading playmaker John Swift.

With all this speculation, Roberts could be forgiven for fearing for his starting place at Elland Road, but the 20-year-old must somehow find a way to ignore the recent transfer rumours and concentrate on his football.

The forward has proved himself to be an important player for Leeds this season, making 24 appearances in the Championship and scoring three goals.

Roberts has proved that he is capable of playing Bielsa’s fast-paced, high-energy style of attacking football and has ultimately thrived in that role just behind the striker.

Before the season, this was an unfamiliar position for Roberts, but he’s developed and really grown into the role, so he’ll want to ensure his spot in that starting XI is secure, and not under threat from any potential arrivals.

It is vital that he does not let the recent transfer speculation affect his performances on the pitch, as we enter the final few matches of the season.
