Leeds United fans react to reports saying Tyler Roberts could go on loan

Tyler Roberts has emerged as a loan target for several Championship clubs after falling down the pecking order at Leeds United, according to the Daily Mail.

Derby, Bournemouth, Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff are all thought to be keen.

Roberts signed for Leeds three years ago from West Bromwich Albion, costing the club £2.8 million.

He helped the club to promotion to the Premier League last season, scoring four goals and registering one assist in 23 appearances.

Roberts has fallen out of the picture this season though. The 21-year-old has started just twice, playing 237 minutes in the top-flight.

In the short-term, a loan move back to the Championship looks like a decent move for the youngster.

He can operate in a number of different positions and his all-action style makes him a nightmare for defenders.

Roberts is fancied as a future star by Bielsa and he’d probably welcome him staying at the club to fight for his place.

The Wales international will want to head to the European Championships next summer, however, and playing football would suit him.

Following the update that says he could go out on a temporary basis, supporters have taken to Twitter.

Here is what they are saying about the potential departure of the seven-time international.
