Leeds United snapped up highly-rated forward Kemar Roofe from Oxford United on Thursday - and he took to Twitter to express his delight at the move.

Having already snapped up Robert Green, Kyle Bartley, Hadi Sacko and Marcus Antonsson, Leeds then moved to land midfielder Matt Grimes on loan from Swansea City on Thursday, but more was to come as Roofe made the move to Elland Road too.

Roofe, 23, came up through the ranks with West Bromwich Albion, but found first-team football hard to come by at The Hawthorns, and after a host of loan spells, he finally settled at Oxford United.

Six goals in 16 games on loan at the Kassam Stadium led to a permanent move last summer, and he smashed a superb 26 goals in 48 games last season to help Oxford win promotion to League One.

However, Roofe won't be playing in the third tier next season, as he sealed a huge move to Leeds on Thursday, with Garry Monk paying an alleged £3m for the forward (BBC Sport), who can play up front or out wide.

After sealing his move to Elland Road, Roofe took to Twitter to send a message to his new supporters, acknowledging that Leeds are a 'massive club', and he's delighted to have signed for the Whites.

A highly sought-after attacker, Roofe produced dazzling displays in League Two, and after a host of clubs pursued his signature, he now has the chance to prove himself in the Championship.

His pace will be a welcome addition to the Leeds side, and if manager Monk chooses to play the 4-2-3-1 system he used at Swansea, Roofe could play from the right hand side, offering support to Chris Wood - and he's certainly Leeds' most exciting signing so far this summer.

Do you think Roofe is a good signing for Leeds?
