There is some intrigue around Leeds United Striker Tyler Roberts. The club paid £2.5m up front for the youngster and he has cracked his shin in training before even kicking a ball for the club.
Roberts was the last recruit in January, signing on deadline day from West Bromwich Albion for an initial £2.5 million rising to £4 million with add-ons. Without making his debut he has managed to crack his shin in training, how we aren’t sure but you would assume that this means some hefty time out, although the club just said it would be “extended” time out rather than putting any time frame on a return for the player.
Roberts is highly rated and comes with the reputation of being a quick and powerful striker, something we are severely lacking in the squad. The one saving grace is that Caleb Ekuban is now fit and was back involved late on away at Sheffield United. The Ghanaian striker has looked very good this season when fit which hasn’t been very often and he’ll now be hoping that he can stay injury free until the end of the season.
