Leeds United fans are gutted after Kemar Roofe left the club to join Vincent Kompany’s Anderlecht.

Last season’s top goalscorer was sold for a fee believed to be around £7m.

Roofe had become a fan favourite at Elland Road with his good performances and a number of dramatic late winners.

He scored 15 Championship goals last season and had it not been for him missing large portions of the campaign with injury he could have easily hit 20 or more.

The striker was entering the last year of his contract, and rather than risk him leaving for free next year Leeds have decided to cash in on the forward.

Unlike when Pontus Jansson left the club, there were no ill words said against the attacker.

Many lavished praise upon the striker and wished him luck, saying that they were gutted that he has chosen to continue his career elsewhere.

Roofe’s goalscoring exploits will certainly live long in the memory, but many fans paid tribute to the departing forward by thanking him for one particular moment.

The 26-year-old netted a late winner away at Aston Villa last season, and a number of fans will never forget that strike.

Although there was no ill will towards the departing star, many supporters had some choice words for Andrea Radrizzani.

The owner has now sanctioned the sales of two key players in Jansson and Roofe, and supporters are fed up.
