Blackburn Rovers, Nottingham Forest and Premier League side Sunderland have all spent time scouting Oxford United star Kemar Roofe, according to a report.

Roofe has been in great form this season for Oxford and looks almost certain to make a step up from League Two at the end of the season, whether that is going up with Oxford or moving away from the club.

Oxford signed Roofe on loan initially, in February 2015, before the midfielder made his move from West Brom permanent at the beginning of this season.

Roofe has been a key member of the Oxford squad all season, making 46 appearances and scoring 25 goals in all competitions.

Two of the goals where scored as Roofe made headlines in a 3-2 victory over Premier League Swansea City back in January.  This is just one of the impressive performances that have led to Roofe attracting so much attention from larger clubs.

Oxford United boss Michael Appleton has admitted that it will be hard to hang onto the club’s top scorer this summer but Roofe may not move to the Premier League.  Having played for West Brom before and having to leave to get his chance, the midfielder may prefer a move to the Championship.
