Kemar Roofe believes that Leeds United will be in the Premier League next season, but has said that he has no regrets over his departure from the club last summer.

The striker left Leeds for Anderlecht last summer after playing a key role in the Whites’ third-placed finish in the Championship last season.

The 27-year-old made 28 starts and five substitute appearances in the second tier during the 2018-19 campaign, scoring 15 goals and providing two assists.

Leeds are once again chasing promotion to the Premier League and have learned from last season’s failed top-flight push by bringing in two fresh faces – Jean-Kevin Augustin and Ian Poveda – up front.

Roofe has said that he is still in touch with some of his ex-teammates and has backed them to get the job done by clinching automatic promotion to the Premier League.

The striker, though, has said that he does not have any regrets over his departure from West Yorkshire last summer.

“No regrets at all,” Roofe told talkSPORT, as reported by Leeds Live. “If you’re thinking ifs and buts and I’m asking questions like, ‘Should I have done this, should I have done that?’, you’re going nowhere in life.



“I made a decision and I’ll stick with it. I’m enjoying it and want to keep improving.”

The striker added: “I still talk to a lot of the boys and they’re flying. I have got a very good feeling for them this season, I really do.”

Having impressed for Leeds, former West Bromwich Albion attacker Roofe has struggled to make the same sort of impact in Belgium, scoring six goals and providing two assists in 13 Jupiler League matches.

Franky Vercauteren’s Anderlecht side ninth in the league table, 24 points behind leaders Club Brugge.

Leeds, meanwhile, are back in action on Saturday when they lock horns with Nottingham Forest away from home at the City Ground in the Championship.
