Graham Smyth has been speaking on the latest edition of the Inside Elland Road podcast by the Yorkshire Evening Post with Joe Urquhart about all things Leeds United.
One of the main topics that they spoke about was transfers and, in particular, potential outgoings at Elland Road.
One player Smyth mentioned was Tyler Roberts, and it seems as if Leeds would be happy to keep him, but if the 21-year-old wants to go out on loan somewhere, he might do that.
He said: “What to do about Tyler Roberts?
“There is definitely a possibility of him going out in January on loan.
“I think it would probably have to be player-led because I don’t see [Marcelo] Bielsa turning around now and saying, ‘Tyler has to go on loan.’
“I think it’s more of a case that Bielsa considers him part of his plans and would be quite happy to keep him and have him as an option and have him as backup – but it is whether or not that’s good enough for Tyler himself.
“We know that there are clubs that are keen. There was talk of a move for him in the summer, but that was largely baseless.
“The talk of interest this time around is genuine.”
Do you want to see Roberts leave?
Yes, he needs the game time
No, we should keep him in the squad
TIF Thoughts on Roberts’ future…
The Welsh international featured in six of Leeds’ first eight Premier League games, but since then, he has only appeared twice for the Whites.
Numerous Championship clubs have been linked with a move for Roberts recently, and while Smyth doesn’t name any teams, it does seem like it will be up to Roberts to decide what he wants to do.
