Kemar Roofe has been an inspired £3m signing at Leeds

Leeds United coughed up £3million (BBC) to sign Kemar Roofe from Oxford United in 2016 and that now looks like an inspired piece of business.

The Whites took a gamble on the attacker by giving him his first shot of the Championship and he’s certainly repaying that faith now.

Roofe spent the early years of his career plying his trade in League Two, but the speed machine had the talent to earn a switch to Elland Road.

The 25-year-old was in and out of the team during the first couple of years, with his flexibility meaning he played as both a winger and striker at times.


But it’s under current boss Marcelo Bielsa that he’s now seriously flourishing and they would surely make a serious profit on Roofe if they were to offload him now.

He has become the first-choice striker for the Whites and appears to have settled on his best position.

Roofe is playing a major role in helping Leeds push for promotion from the Championship, as he’s already scored seven goals in just 10 league matches.

He is thriving as the spearhead of the attack, where his intelligent movement and eye for goal is helping him become a talisman for the Yorkshire giants.
