Leeds attacker Kemar Roofe has claimed he is happy playing in any position for the team.
The 23-year-old has cemented his place in the side recently and played 90 minutes in the club’s last two games against Wolves and Wigan.
Roofe completed a move to Elland Road in the summer and was purchased after winning the League Two Player of the Year award.
The forward scored 25 goals in 49 appearances across all competitions for Oxford last season and enjoyed great success playing in a central position.
Leeds manager Garry Monk has predominately used him on the left wing and his performances have begun to impress.
Roofe has admitted that his is still getting used to the speed of the Championship and is pleased to play in anywhere in the side.
“Last season I played up front and down the middle,” Roofe said, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post. “But I just want to play. For me it’s all about getting game time and getting used to everything – getting used to the tempo of the Championship and getting used to my team-mates.
“They need to get used to me too and when all that goes to plan, I’m sure it’ll be good.”
Monk was first alerted by Roofe when Oxford sent his former side Swansea crashing out of the FA Cup, with the striker scoring a superb brace.
He has made 16 appearances in all competitions since his move to Elland Road and has worked well with left-back Charlie Taylor.
Chris Wood has been the first-choice striker this season and scored eight goals in his 16 appearances while playing in the central role.
