Kemar Roofe can’t contain his excitement after declaring himself fit for Leeds’ Championship clash against Cardiff.
Roofe, 24, was withdrawn in Leeds’ 2-1 win over Blackburn earlier this month after suffering a rib injury against Owen Coyle’s side, which saw him miss Sunday’s defeat to Huddersfield.
However, Roofe has been given the all-clear and revealed on his personal Instagram account that he is “feeling strong” and “can’t wait” for Saturday’s clash at Elland Road.
Roofe has been one of Leeds’ brightest creative sparks this season, as he continues to inspire Garry Monk’s side in the final third during their hunt for promotion.
The former West Brom youth player has had a hand in nine goals this season. Scoring three himself against Wolves, Aston Villa and Preston, Roofe has also supplied six assists.
However, it remains to be seen if last season’s League Two Player of the Year will stroll back into Monk’s side following the deadline-day signings of Alfonso Pedraza and Modou Barrow.
The two new signings are expected to feature in some capacity against Cardiff and it remains to be seen how Monk will incorporate Roofe, as well as Stuart Dallas and Souleymane Doukara.
