📢JUST IN : Journalist Supports International Star’s Leeds United Move as Modest Fee Could Seal Deal


The Wales international spent the second half of the Championship season on loan with Daniel Farke’s side at Elland Road, impressing as the Whites narrowly missed out on promotion back to the Premier League.

Reports suggest Leeds are keen to re-sign the 28-year-old [The Athletic, June 13] and Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Smyth believes both Roberts and Burnley would be open to a deal.

On Friday (July 5), Smyth wrote to X: “I daresay I would definitely go for it. I also think Burnley would accept if they offered him even a modest sum.

“I think they’re covered there now. He’d be a good option, but the priority? The jury’s out.”

Will Connor Roberts return to Leeds United and leave Burnley in the summer transfer window?

Leeds United could do with a new right-back this summer, especially after Archie Gray’s summer move to Tottenham was confirmed earlier in the transfer window.

The teenager may have been a midfielder of sorts, but he spent the vast majority of last season playing on the right of Daniel Farke’s back line and was actually rarely featured in his preferred position in the Championship.

Sam Byram has agreed a new deal at Elland Road and although he is set to stay in the position in the summer transfer window, he has struggled with injury problems on several occasions throughout his career.

Roberts appeared to be an instant hit in the dressing room and quickly won over a fan base after arriving in January, making him an ideal signing this summer, especially if Burnley were willing to sell.

Whether Leeds will be willing to match the asking price of their Championship rivals remains to be seen, but given Roberto’s track record in winning the division, this looks to be a deal worth spending a modest sum of money on this summer.
