Their credentials as one of the top sides in the country have only been boosted by last season's impressive return to the Premier League, and with Marcelo Bielsa at the helm, many observers inside and outside of the club are of the opinion that the sky is the limit at Elland Road.

But while signing new players will be at the forefront of many people’s attentions, there’s a lot to be said for retaining the services of Bielsa’s current dressing room - just as the Whites have done with Wales international Tyler Roberts.

The attacker has signed a new three-year deal in Yorkshire, and Leeds chief Victor Orta has been quick to praise the move.

“We are really pleased to see Tyler commit his future to Leeds United”, he said after Roberts had put pen to paper on a new contract recently.

“Ever since he joined the club, Tyler has grown to become a really influential member of the squad, making over 80 appearances.

“He is also a full Wales international with 14 caps and will be taking part in Euro 2020, which we hope will be a great experience for him.

“Tyler has continued to improve during his time at the club and still at a young age, I believe we have a lot more to see come from him in the future.”
