The Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe has delivered a positive update on his recovery via his Instagram story.

Roofe scored four goals and assisted two in six league matches at the start of the season, but has failed to feature since Leeds' 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough at the end of August.


Earlier this week, the Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa predicted a post-international break return for the 25-year-old, who appears to be on schedule.

Over an image of the Hungry Hippos board game, Roofe wrote: "Quick game before I do my last day with the physios".

Despite suffering a slight dip in form in Roofe's absence, Leeds remain top of the Championship standings, albeit level on points with Middlesbrough and Sheffield United.

With Patrick Bamford also ruled out after suffering a long-term knee injury, Roofe has seen his role filled by the youngster Tyler Roberts, who has impressed with three goals and one assist in that time.

Should Roofe regain his Leeds place from Roberts when he returns?
