Swansea City

After progressing through Swansea City's Youth Academy, Roberts won the 2014–15 Professional U21 Development League 2 title in his debut professional season and was rewarded with a new two-year contract.

Roberts signed a new three-year contract with Swansea City in September 2016. Upon returning from Bristol Rovers, Roberts linked up with Swansea City Under-23s and went on to win the 2016–17 Professional U23 Development League 2 title and 2016–17 Premier League Cup.

Yeovil Town loan

On 8 August 2015, Roberts joined Football League Two club Yeovil Town on a one-month loan deal, and made his debut later that day in a 3–2 defeat against Exeter City. Roberts quickly established himself at Huish Park, and the Glovers extended Roberts' loan contract to the end of the 2015–16 season.

Roberts made 54 appearances for Yeovil over the course of the season, missing just one match due to a call-up to the Wales Under-21 national team. Roberts received three Player of the Year Awards and was also voted Young Player of the Year.

Bristol Rovers loan

In August 2016, Roberts joined Football League One club Bristol Rovers on a six-month loan deal. Roberts made his debut in a 3–2 victory over Northampton Town on 1 October 2016, and made a further four appearances for the Pirates before returning to Swansea.

Middlesbrough loan

On 14 July 2017, it was announced that Roberts would be joining Championship club Middlesbrough on a season-long loan deal.

International career

Roberts has been capped at Wales under-19 level. In March 2016, Roberts received his first call-up to the Wales under-21 side for their 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification matches, and made his debut as a second-half substitute in their 2–1 defeat against Romania, on 29 March 2016.
