Leeds have completed the signing of forward Kemar Roofe from Oxford.

The 23-year-old, who was named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Year last season, has signed a four-year deal.

He becomes new Leeds head coach Garry Monk's sixth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Marcus Antonsson, Kyle Bartley, Hadi Sacko, Robert Green and Matt Grimes.

"It's an amazing feeling," Roofe told the club website. "I don't think I'll actually realise how big the club is until the first game of the season, but I'm amazed by what I've seen so far. 

"As soon as I found out, I was really pleased to be a part of a club like this. The club has a great history and a bright future as well. 

"You can tell there's something exciting happening here with the signings we're making - they're all good signings. 

"I can't wait to start getting to know the squad and playing football again."

Roofe, who started his career at West Bromwich Albion, scored 26 goals in 49 appearances last season as Oxford secured promotion to Sky Bet League One. 

He scored three times in Oxford's run to the FA Cup fourth round, scoring twice in their 3-2 win over Monk's former club Swansea in the third round.
