Leeds ace Tyler Roberts eyed by FIVE Championship clubs on loan transfer with Bielsa weighing-up sending 21-year-old outJanuary 7, 2021
A WEALTH of Championship clubs are reportedly interested in Leeds attacker Tyler Roberts.
The Yorkshire club are well clear of the relegation zone upon their return to the Premier League and are weighing up a loan move for the 21-year-old.
Marcelo Bielsa has handed Roberts just two starts in the league, with the forward yet to score.
According to the Mail, the manager highly rates his player but could nonetheless allow a temporary exit.
Sheffield Wednesday, Derby, Cardiff, Bournemouth and Preston are all named as interested parties in the Welshman's future.
The Cherries in particular may soon need to replace Josh King, with the striker reportedly wanted by West Ham.
A handful of other second-tier teams are said to have registered their desire to loan Roberts for the remainder of the campaign.
It has been reported that Leeds could bolster their attack with a shock swoop for Wolves winger Adama Traore.

Young Toulouse midfielder Kouadio Kone and Erick Pulgar of Fiorentina have also featured in Leeds transfer rumours.
Such deals may push Roberts towards the exit door but the youngster has spoken of his gratitude to Bielsa and Wales boss Ryan Giggs for handing him the chance to impress at the highest level.
Roberts said in October: "I'm definitely enjoying my football at the moment," said the 21-year-old.
"I'm really grateful that both managers, for club and country, are putting trust in me and giving me the opportunity and the minutes to go and express myself, learn and play football.
It’s been a great experience and a great start to the season from Leeds especially.
"I'm just trying to take every single opportunity that I can.
"It’s been a great experience and a great start to the season from Leeds especially.
"Playing against top players at Liverpool and Man City, I think the biggest difference is that you don’t come up against any player who is technically below anyone else."
