Leeds United announced the signing of West Bromwich Albion striker Tyler Roberts on transfer deadline day and it was news that had supporters of the club in raptures.

The Whites confirmed that the 19-year-old had made the switch to the Championship club through their official website and Twitter feeds and it was jumped on by the fans.

One made a comment that the arrival of Roberts ‘could be the signing of the season,’ while another was pleased with the news but urged the club to rectify other problem areas, stating ‘Nice. Now just a defender and a proper defensive midfielder.’

The Wales U21 international has spent this season on loan at Walsall where he has notched up five goals from 19 matches played but has struggled to break into the Baggies first team since his debut in the senior side – back in May 2016 against Liverpool in the Premier League.

Leeds have struggled to compete with the top sides in the Championship lately and find themselves on the back of five games without a win, with a lot of talk about there being a need for improvements in attack.

Kemar Roofe aside, there has been a distinct lack of goal threat from other areas of the pitch and Thomas Christiansen will hope his new arrival can go some of the way to alleviating the pressure the club find themselves under.

Here is some reaction from Twitter and Roberts’ signing appears to have appeased supporters for now:
