Leeds United appear to be closing in on yet another new signing.
The Whites have already been busy this summer, recently adding goalkeeper Rob Green on a 12-month contract and securing loan deals for Hadi Sacko and Matt Grimes after earlier bringing in Kyle Bartley and Marcus Antonsson.
But it seems a sixth signing cold be heading to Elland Road sooner rather than later.
The YEP claims Leeds are confident of getting a deal for Roofe over the line despite the considerable outlay it will take to sign the 23-year-old.
Roofe is a right winger who can also play on the opposite flank or as a striker and his versatility will come in very handy as new Leeds manager Garry Monk seeks to turn the Whites into promotion candidates next season.
Roofe scored 25 goals and provided 12 assists in 49 matches for Oxford last season and with two years left on his contract, now would be the time to sell rather than risk losing him for significantly less in 12 months.
While the majority of Leeds’ transfer business to date has been conducted on the cheap, Roofe’s arrival would change that and would be a statement of intent ahead of the new campaign.
