Leeds United forward, Tyler Roberts, is a man in-demand it seems, with the Daily Mail reporting Derby are among five Championship clubs keen on him.
Roberts has fallen down the pecking order somewhat at Elland Road but it is believed Marcelo Bielsa wants the former West Brom man to stay put, despite his lack of starts.
The likes of Derby, Bournemouth, and Preston are all said to be keen, while Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday are also said to be monitoring Roberts’ situation in West Yorkshire.
Roberts cost Leeds £2.5m and any permanent move is likely to see the club make a profit of some sort. The forward could well look to get some first-team football under his belt, which could present a temporary loan option too.
Leeds themselves are thought to be in the market for new players although new signings look unlikely.

And that is the worry really for Marcelo Bielsa. He won’t want a player among the group if they’re not fully invested and willing to give their all to the cause.
Roberts, in fairness, has come in and done his best when selected and off the bench but, at times, has looked short on Premier League quality.
A move in January might well help him regain some form and fitness but Leeds, quite rightly, would want someone in the door to replace him.
