Roofe, who can operate as a striker or as a winger, has spoken highly of the players that Leeds have signed so far this summer.

The 24-year-old, who has been on the books of Leeds since the summer of 2016 when he joined from Oxford United for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £3 million, has said that the new players are very creative and intelligent.

“I think maybe that’s the difference from last year,” Roofe told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “The players brought in are very creative and intelligent, which is good for everybody because we can feed each other.

“It’s been a good start already, we’re obviously unbeaten and we look solid in defence. We’re adding goals to all that as well.”

With the departure of Chris Wood to Premier League club Burnley in the summer transfer window, Leeds either need to find a striker who can score 20 to 25 goals in the Championship this season or have the attacking midfielders to chip in.

The creative in Leeds’ midfield is great, and it is important that players like Saiz and Alioski score goals regularly this season.
