Report: Leeds attacker Tyler Roberts to stay at Elland Road amid loan interest

Leeds United have reportedly decided that Tyler Roberts will stay at Elland Road this month.

The 22-year-old attacker has struggled for minutes so far this season, which is why he’s been linked with a temporary exit away from Yorkshire.

According to the Athletic, there has been approaches from clubs in the Championship about signing the Wales international on loan for the second half of this season.

It is understood that there has been interest from the likes Derby County, Bournemouth and Cardiff City.

 

The report explains that the player is expected to stay with Leeds though, with manager Marcelo Bielsa not open to the idea of granting his temporary exit.

TBR’s View:

Roberts will be desperate to play more regularly, especially as he’s recently turned 22 and will be looking to kick on with the next step of his career.

He’s a versatile attacker that can play in the number 10 role or as a traditional striker, with his versatility one of the aspects that Bielsa surely loves about his game.

But the Welshman has started just three of the 10 appearances he’s made this season and is being used as a squad player.

With Leeds currently hitting a mini blip with back-to-back league defeats, perhaps now is a good opportunity for him to try show how he can impact the side after remaining patient for long spells.
