Leeds United ace who has 'all the tools' signs new 3-year contract; made 27 PL appearances last season
Leeds United have confirmed Tyler Roberts has signed a new three-year contract with the club.
The new contract will keep the Wales international at Elland Road until the end of the 2023/2024 season.
Roberts was in brilliant form during his season last term. The forward scored five goals and assisted a further four across the first-team and under-23s.
He ended the season in good form, scoring in the 2-0 win over Southampton in matchday 37.
Speaking about his contract, the striker claimed that he has ‘a lot of love for and a lot of passion for’.
His deal is in stark contrast to the decision he had to make back in January. The Welshman was offered the chance at leaving the Yorkshire outfit on loan, however, rejected the chance.
Tony Pulis once claimed he has ‘all the tools’.
TBR View: Roberts contract a win-win situation for Leeds
Roberts hasn’t enjoyed the greatest of times with Leeds since his move from West Brom back in 2019.
However, his displays improved towards the end of last season, giving hope for the future.
Retaining him on a three-year contract was a win-win situation for both parties.
It’s a long enough contract whereby Leeds hold all the cards.
Next season will be a crucial year for the ace as he looks to carry on his greta run of form.
However, should he fail, the remaining two years on his deal will allow Leeds to sell him for a fair profit.
Should he perform well, Leeds will possess enough time to renew his deal further.
With all this being said, there is a lot of doubt over the 22-year-old. For a centre-forward, he doesn’t score enough goals. Roberts has just five goal over the last two seasons of senior football.
His contract provides the Whites with the perfect position. The Roberts deal provides optimum time and value to the Yorkshire outfit.
