Leeds: Tyler Roberts rejects new contract offer - Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United midfielder Tyler Roberts has reportedly rejected a new contract offer at Elland Road, throwing his Whites future into doubt.

The Lowdown: Key squad player for Leeds

Leeds have thrived in their first season back in the Premier League, with so many individuals having a positive effect on the campaign.

While Roberts hasn’t necessarily been a star man, he has still featured 25 times in the league, registering two assists for Marcelo Bielsa’s team.

However, there has been reported interest from Newcastle United in the 22-year-old in recent times, with the Welshman’s contract expiring at the end of next season.

The Latest: Roberts rejects contract offer

According to Football Insider, Roberts has ‘snubbed’ a new deal with the Whites, giving Newcastle and other clubs hope of signing him in the summer.

Bielsa is a big admirer of the youngster, rating his versatility, and it will be interesting to see how the story develops.

The Verdict: Better if he stays

It is vital that Leeds keep this nucleus of players together in order to keep building this special era at Elland Road, especially those who Bielsa trusts.

Roberts has been a regular of late, starting 12 league games in a row until the 4-0 win at Burnley last weekend, and at the tender age of 22, he is a long-term prospect for the club. He also comes with a strong endorsement from his former manager Tony Pulis, who hailed him as a “very, very talented boy” who “has got everything”.

Losing him at this stage in his career would be a big blow, so Leeds need to do all they can to convince him that he will be a key figure for them for years to come.

In other news, Leeds are believed to be eyeing up a move for a South American international this summer. Find out who it is here.
