Leeds United fans on Twitter are split in their views after Phil Hay reported that Kemar Roofe has passed his Anderlecht medical.

News broke last week that the Belgian side were lining up a move for the striker, and it seems like they are going to land their man.

The 26-year-old was Leeds’ top goalscorer last season, netting 15 times for the Whites.

The attacker was entering the last year of his contract, and with no deal on the horizon, the Yorkshire club have seemingly decided to cash in on Roofe.

This will leave the Whites with just one senior striker in the squad, but with recent links to Eddie Nketiah that may not be a problem for long.

The sale of their star striker has inevitably divided opinions amongst the fanbase.

In one camp there are a number of Leeds fans who believe this sale isn’t bad business.

The Yorkshire club will apparently receive £7m for the attacker, and many fans believe this isn’t a bad move due to the amount of time left on his contract and the number of injuries he picks up.

Indeed, Roofe is rather injury-prone as he started just 28 Championship games last term, and missed a large portion of the season due to injuries.

Understandably, many supporters aren’t over the moon about their top scorer leaving the club this summer.

One fan stated that £7m isn’t enough to get an adequate replacement, while another had a dig at Andrea Radrizzani for his lack of investment.
