Newcastle United are reportedly monitoring Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe ahead of the January transfer window.
A number of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the reports emerging from the Daily Mirror over the weekend suggesting that Newcastle are considering a January move for Kemar Roofe.
Roofe has been sensational during the opening months of the season. Marcelo Bielsa has given him the chance to enjoy a run in the side leading the line, and he has repaid that faith emphatically.
The 25-year-old has scored 13 goals in 19 Championship appearances, including five goals in his last five games for the Championship table-toppers.
But the Leeds supporters do not appear to be worried.
Plenty of fans have suggested that they cannot see why Roofe would want to go when Leeds are battling for promotion and Newcastle appear to face a fight to stay in the top flight.
And with many of those supporters suggesting that they would want to see £20 million offered before a sale is considered, it appears that very few of the Elland Road faithful are particularly worried about Roofe being St James’ Park-bound next month.
Here is how some of the supporters reacted to the reports…
@NUFC linked with @roofe39 wouldn’t bother if I was him. Look at how they threw Gayle away once they got to the PL & he pretty much got them promoted. See out the mission Roofe #ROOFEROOFEROOFE #LUFC #Leeds @LUFC— Nic (@niccarpy) December 30, 2018
Roofe to Newcastle would be a disaster for us. What fee would we ask to accept? Could we replace him? #lufc— WotzThatSound (@WotzThatSound) December 30, 2018
If Newcastle are in for Roofe, surely they’d just recall Gayle and keep their . #Roofe— Lew. (@lewgibbsandrews) December 30, 2018
Can’t see Roofe leaving for Newcastle. This is the year that’s looked the most likely for us to get promoted, absolutely no gain for Roofe to leave and especially to Newcastle of all clubs, stupid move if he goes there #lufc #nufc— Josh Firth (@ffsBazza) December 30, 2018
newcastle are welcome to roofe if we sign someone else, appreciate what he’s done but other than 90th min goals to save us he does absolutely nothing all game, had about 1 or 2 shots all game every game— seeley (@SeeIey) December 30, 2018
Roofe to Newcastle #LUFC #Roofe #NUFC #LeedsUtd January will be a long month filled with transfer gossip. Roofe is surely worth at least £20m. Wouldn’t rule out the club selling if that kind of money was offered to Leeds pic.twitter.com/kmrRYZOMpR— The Cill Dara Times (@CillDaraTimes) December 30, 2018
