Leeds looking at deal for young Premier League forward

19th January 2018

Championship outfit Leeds United are interested in signing West Brom forward Tyler Roberts.

The 19-year-old spent the first part of the season on-loan at League One outfit Walsall, where he scored five goals and assisted a further three in 15 games.

Roberts also has had previous loan spells at Shrewsbury Town and Oxford United.

The youngster has international experience with Wales, representing the country at youth levels from under-15s to under-21s.

The Whites are believed to be on the hunt for a striker to join the first-team before the conclusion of the January transfer window - with Roberts on the wishlist.

Prior to January, Roberts' goals at Walsall made him the highest-scoring teenager in the EFL this season.

The striker's contract with his parent club is set to expire at the end of the season, with Scottish Premiership side Rangers also said to be looking to tempt him to Ibrox.

Leeds have recently signed Middlesbrough midfielder Adam Forshaw as they look to strengthen their squad for a promotion run-in.

The 26-year-old moves to Elland Road in a deal worth £4.5m and has signed a four and a half year deal, running until the summer of 2022.

The Whites hijacked a deal for the 26-year-old after Cardiff City had submitted a £2.5m bid for the player.

The midfielder has featured in 14 games in all competitions this season, but has found himself out-of-favour following Tony Pulis' appointment at Middlesbrough.

In total, Forshaw has played in over 100 games for Middlesbrough - including a regular role in the team during the side's spell in the Premier League during the 2016/17 season.
