Leeds United signed Connor Roberts on loan on deadline day in a deal running for the rest of the season, aiming to help the side to promotion this term.

Djed Spence and Luke Ayling leaving the club early in 2024 meant that the club had to think fast in order to replace well at right-back.

A number of players were strongly linked with a move to Elland Road during that month, eventually seeing them land a deadline day deal for Connor Roberts – confirmed after the clock struck 11pm.

Revealed: Terms of Connor Roberts loan at Leeds

Roberts made the fairly short trip over the Pennines from Burnley to Leeds on deadline day, moving to Elland road on loan for the rest of the season.

The Clarets only sanctioned a straight loan, though, meaning there is currently not an option to buy included in his deal.

However, the player himself has already indicated that he would be happy to have a longer stay at LS11 (via The Athletic):

“Football’s a funny game so I’ll be doing my very best to make a good impression on and off the pitch and maybe in the future it can change from a straight loan.”

Connor Roberts wages mapped out

Roberts joined Burnley from Swansea City in 2021, signing a four-year deal in the process which runs until 2025.

According to Capology, his wage (as of 22/23) was £26,154-per-week at Turf Moor – earning £1.36million across a year.

Leeds signing him could bring a commitment to pay his wages for the rest of the season, given Burnley might not have him in their future plans after replacing him, as well as Roberts’ insistence to look at future options away from the Clarets.
