New report claims NUFC have been ‘continually monitoring’ Leeds star for over 3 years

Newcastle have been ‘continually monitoring’ Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe according to the Chronicle – suggesting talk of our ‘interest’ in January may have had some truth in it.

They claim that we’ve been tracking the 26-year-old since his prolific spell at Oxford in 2015/16 – and we’re likely to have been left impressed this season with him bagging 14 goals in 26 Championship appearances so far.

Here’s what’s been said about our long-term interest in the striker during a recent piece in the Chronicle:

“He’s no stranger to Newcastle scouts going back to his Oxford days.

“A player continually monitored but is now out with knee injury.”

He’s picked up a knee ligament injury, so has been missing recently for Leeds, but this makes you wonder if he’s a player we might look at if they fail to gain promotion this summer – with it sounding like he’s a player who’s been on Rafa’s radar for some time.

Here’s him in action this season:
