Roofe signs from Oxford United, with the fee a record amount for the League One side to receive.

The attacker scored 25 goals in all competitions last season, including 17 in League Two as he helped the club win promotion.

He is the second forward Leeds have signed this summer, following Marcus Antonsson who joined from Swedish side Kalmar.

Roofe is also the third signing Leeds have made within 24 hours, bringing in goalkeeper Robert Green on a free transfer.

He was sold by West Bromwich Albion last summer, in a move which did not got down well with Baggies fans, and now he has a bigger stage than previously to continue showing the decision was a bad one.

Roofe can play anywhere across the attack, and also provided 11 assists last season for Oxford.

He has signed a four-year contract and his addition shows that the Whites are determined to put together a squad capable of challenging for promotion this coming season.
