Transfer News: Burnley eyeing a move for Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe

Leeds United News: Burnley are reportedly approaching a move for Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe, claims Football Insider.

Kemar Roofe

With the 26-year-old’s contract nearing its end, the Clarets have submitted their interest.

Roofe has been the go-to-guy for Marcelo Bielsa with an impressive 16–goal haul this season.

However, an unfortunate knee ligament injury impeded his progress and sidelined him for months.

The former West Bromwich Albion striker has made more than 100 appearances for the Whites.

The Jamaican striker also received his maiden international call-up for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Roofe’s departure- whether a blow for Leeds

During Roofe’s injury lay-off, the Argentine manager had a tough time in choosing the appropriate replacement.

Patrick Bamford was deployed as the striker but couldn’t be as productive as Roofe.

Bamford, the English centre-forward, received sticks from the Elland Raod fans, following his string of poor displays. 

Moreover, Leeds couldn’t find the right inspiration up in front at the crucial stage of the season, which led to their automatic promotion slip.

Difficulties in keeping Roofe

The Jamaican striker has a funny history with English clubs, as he was often loaned to various sides.

And the Clarets are clear of relegation and will continue in the Premier League next season.

Meanwhile, LUFC are yet to book their places in England’s top flight, as they are set to play in playoffs.

If the Promotion bid fails for Bielsa, then Roofe would look to have second thoughts about his future with the Championship side.
