Leeds United transfer news: Whites on brink of confirming deal, Orta willing to fund second swoop for defender

At long last, the Premier League transfer window is open, and for Leeds United it will present an opportunity for them to build on the squad that helped them secure an impressive ninth-placed finish last term.

Just as important as acquiring new faces, however, will be the process of tying down the talent that Marcelo Bielsa already has at Elland Road – and the Whites have already managed to do just that with one star.

Wales international Tyler Roberts has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal with the club, much the player’s delight.

“I’m extremely happy to be signing,” said the 22-year-old.

“It’s a club I have a lot of love for and a lot of passion for, I’m just happy to get it done and know that my future is here.

“It’s been great to know the club and the manager especially has that faith in me to see my future here. I’m excited. It’s been a good few years and we’ve done some amazing things but now it’s time for more exciting things, pushing on and keep improving.”

“I’ve always, since I’ve got here, been in love with the club and the city so I was always hoping I could push on and get into the team and get another contract,” he said. “The club has brought me on so much, the people here are amazing. I was hoping this was the outcome and I’m just happy that it is.”
