Former Scotland defender Alan Hutton admits Tyler Roberts’ future will ultimately be decided by how much first-team football he is playing.
The Lowdown: Up-and-down season for Roberts
Leeds United have enjoyed a superb season back in the Premier League, picking up some memorable wins and playing scintillating football along the way.
While Marcelo Bielsa has had some undoubted key performers, someone who has been on the periphery a little is Roberts.
The Verdict: Keep hold of him
While Roberts may not be one of Bielsa’s undisputed key players at the moment, it would be a huge shame to move him on at this stage in his career.
At 22, the attacking midfielder has so much potential, already making 81 appearances for the Whites, showcasing that Bielsa clearly sees a player in there.
It would be understandable if Roberts sees his future elsewhere, however – in many ways, it is admirable if he wants to play more football, rather than be a squad player for the foreseeable future.
Leeds fans could find it hard to begrudge him a move, but he is someone who still has so much to offer at Elland Road.
In other news, Leeds have reportedly scheduled talks with one player over a summer move. Find out who it is here.
