Leeds United fans are gutted that they didn’t move for Lewis Grabban, following his move to Aston Villa.

Leeds were looking for a new striker for much of the January transfer window, and they ended up bringing in Tyler Roberts from West Bromwich Albion.

Roberts looks like an extremely bright prospect, but there are question marks over whether he is ready to step into Leeds’ starting line-up right away.

Grabban would have certainly made an impact at Elland Road - but ended up at Villa instead.

Villa are one of Leeds’ promotion rivals, as they aim to return to the Premier League, and some Whites fans have admitted that they are still some way behind some of their play off chasing rivals.

Roberts has impressed in League One this term, but the youngster will be making a big step up now.

The 19-year-old is in competition with Pierre Michel Lasogga and Kemar Roofe for a starting place at Leeds.

Grabban, meanwhile, will be looking to displace Scott Hogan in Bruce’s starting line-up at Villa.
