Leeds United’s Tyler Roberts is reportedly attracting interest from English Championship side Derby County – and some of their fans on Twitter have responded by claiming they would like to see him sign.
According to the Times, Derby are a team that are eyeing the 21-year-old as a possible summer target but it’s unclear on if any deal would be a loan or a permanent one.
Roberts has seen his career so far at Elland Road disrupted by injuries since his arrival in 2018, but he’s shown in glimpses that he’s got massive talent and may have a bright future ahead of him.
The youngster is already a senior Wales international with seven caps for his country and is a versatile attacker that usually operates in a creative role just behind the striker, but has been used on the wings too.
He only managed 23 appearances across all competitions last season for Leeds during their title-winning campaign in the Championship, scoring four goals and supplying one assist.
Roberts has had regular game-time when fit for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and the Derby rumours have come out of the blue.
A selection of Derby supporters on social media have been talking about Leeds attacker Roberts and believe he could be a strong addition if they manage to sign him.
Here are some Derby fans discussing Roberts:

The Times reporting #dcfc are in for Tyler Roberts at Leeds. Yes please! I would be surprised if #lufc were to let him leave though, even on loan. Should be part of their first team plans this season IMO.

Very, very good in the penultimate game of the season against us – believe he set up the last goal. Although been withdrawn from the latest Wales, injury prone.

Seen on here that he’s got poppadom knees or something.
Was immense against us at our place though.
