West Brom winger Kemar Roofe extends loan deal at Oxford United until end of the season

West Brom

The 22-year-old has not yet made his debut for The Baggies.

West Bromwich Albion have certainly steadied their ship since Tony Pulis arrived earlier in the season. The former Stoke City and Crystal Palace boss has seemingly pulled them away from the relegation battle after a poor start to the season under Alan Irvine.

He has also revitalised the form of several key players.

Unfortunately for some, however, there is no more room in the inn.

One player who falls into that category is 22-year-old winger Kemar Roofe. The talented local lad has never really made the grade with West Brom. He is yet to make his first-team debut for The Baggies, although he has been named on the bench on a couple of occasions.

The majority of his West Brom career has been spent out on loan. He has had varying degrees of success during stints with Vikingur Reykjavik, Northampton Town, Cheltenham Town and Colchester United.

He is currently with Oxford United and must have impressed at the club because it was confirmed earlier, as reported by the BBC, that the club had extended his loan spell at the Kassam Stadium until the end of the season.

Oxford boss Michael Appleton, a former West Brom player himself, even hinted at making the move permanent, stating:

"He's been out on loan at clubs before and it's not really happened for him and he's gone back early or gone back for a month

"I don't think he's got any grand designs to go back to West Brom. I think he is enjoying being in this environment."

Roofe's chances of becoming a regular West Brom player seem slim. So this loan deal is a massive opportunity to get his name out there and potentially attract suitors.
