Premier League defender joins the Whites.

Leeds United are delighted to confirm the arrival of Connor Roberts on loan from Premier League side Burnley, until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

Roberts moves to Elland Road with vast experience of playing in the Sky Bet Championship, having won the division and secured promotion with the Clarets last season.

At the end of that campaign, the Welshman was named in both the EFL Championship Team of the Season, along with the PFA Team of the Year.

The 28-year-old defender also has over 50 caps at international level, having represented Wales at UEFA Euro 2020, as well as the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

So far this season, Roberts has made 16 appearances in all competitions for Burnley, being deployed on both the right and the left hand-side of the defence when called upon.

In his early career Connor progressed through the academy at Swansea City, playing alongside both Dan James and Joe Rodon, who he now links back up with, as well as international teammate Ethan Ampadu.

He will wear the number 33 shirt and could make his Whites debut against Rotherham United in the Sky Bet Championship at Elland Road next weekend.
