Leeds United attacker Kemar Roofe is being targeted by Championship sides West Brom and Sheffield United, according to reports on Football Insider.
The 25-year old finished last season as the leading scorer at Elland Road, with 14 goals in 30 starts across all competitions. He played in a variety of positions, including the lone striker role and out wide as two managers struggled to find a settled formation.
Recently-Relegated West Brom are the first club keeping an eye on the player. He started out at the Hawthorns as a youngster but didn’t break through, swapping the Premier League for League Two at Oxford United in 2015.
It was at the Kassam Stadium where he made his name, firing 26 goals in 49 matches across all competitions, being named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year. That prompted Leeds to snap him up for an ‘undisclosed seven-figure fee’.
Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United are also looking at Roofe in the wake of losing David Brooks to Bournemouth and gaining £10m in spending money over the course of the summer.
Roofe still has two years to run on his contract at Elland Road and wouldn’t come cheap to either of the potential suitors.
Roofe did really well in a poor Leeds side and can do even better if he’s surrounded by good players and a clear tactic. He needs to settle in to one position, but when he does there’s lots more to come.
He might be better staying put, but with Leeds being linked with new players, there’s a chance a fresh start could be the way forward. Neither club would be disappointed if they acquired him.
