Kemar Roofe has signed for Leeds United in a record-breaking sale believed to be £3m.
Kemar Roofe has signed a four-year deal with Championship side Leeds United, becoming the club’s most expensive sale ever, after Matt Elliot’s £1.6m sale to Leicester in 1997.
The 23-year-old striker has been in outstanding form for Oxford United last season, scoring 26 goals to fire the U’s to automatic promotion from League Two.
Roofe leaves a huge hole in the side with 32 goals from 60 starts, with the transfer fee not swelling the coffers as much as the U’s hoped due to WBA’s 40% sell on clause.
His transfer to Leeds United is seen as an ambitious move by the club, with Roofe having the potential to become a key player in the squad. Leeds United manager Gary Monk is thrilled to add Roofe to the team, stating that he is “a player of great potential”. With Roofe now part of the team, Leeds fans have good reason to be optimistic about the future of the club and eyeing promotion back to the Premier League.
