Leeds United urged to sign ex-West Ham striker, Huddersfield man set to join divisional rivals
Leeds United are gearing up for a busy summer transfer window, as they look to continue impressing in the Premier League and establish themselves as a top tier powerhouse once again.
The Whites spent big last summer, and could well invest heavily again as they look to build on a strong return to the top table of English football.
Yesterday, the club announced that Wales forward Tyler Roberts had signed a new deal to extend his stay at Elland Road, and the player insisted: “I haven’t reached my full potential yet and shown everything about, getting more goals and assists.
“I’m happy to sign but there’s a lot more to come. It’s definitely time to really push on now. The first couple of seasons were tough with injuries, stop start, but I’ve been fit all season and been called up to the national team which I’m very proud of.
“I think I was quite unfortunate with the injuries I had; it was a problem I had reoccurring. It was unfortunate to go through that but this season I’ve kept fit all season, which is credit to the physio team and sports scientists at Leeds. I’ve been doing a lot of extra work to make sure I can stay on the pitch and try and get that momentum.”
Meanwhile, down in the Championship, Yorkshire sides Huddersfield Town, Sheffield United and Hull City will all be looking to hit the ground running next season, and get off to a flying start in the ruthlessly competitive second tier.
