Leeds United forward Tyler Roberts spoke to LUTV after agreeing to extend his stay at Elland Road.

The Wales international has signed a new three-year deal with the Whites, on the back of helping Leeds finish ninth in the Premier League, following the club’s return to the top-flight.

Roberts spoke of his happiness at penning a new deal and last season’s campaign.

“To be rewarded and go into the future with this club is definitely a proud moment for me and a great feeling,” said Roberts.

“Last season was a season full of ups, nobody outside of our team and Leeds expected us to do that well really.

“There was a lot of talk before the season about how our style wouldn’t work and what was going to happen, but the boys were great and we kept at it, we have a great manager who trusts in the way that we play and it showed in our performances this season.

“It was great to be a part of it, playing in the big games and battling with the best, was a great experience.”

Roberts also revealed what it was like to score his first Premier League goal, in the penultimate game of the season against Southampton and how he is now looking to continue to improve at Leeds over the next few years.

He said: “It was nice to get that monkey off my back, a little bit later than I expected, but I finally got there.

“Next season I’m looking to kick on and keep getting into those areas.

“I want to get more goals and become an even more important part of the team.

“I’m excited to see the fans back in the stadium next season, I’ll be working hard to make sure I’m at my best and to show them even more than I have.”
