Patrick Bamford has picked four players for Leeds Player of the year.

The Leeds United striker feels that Stuart Dallas, Ben White, Kalvin Phillips, and Jack Harrison should be in contention for the award.

The Whites sit top of the Championship table after 37 games and are one of the favourites to secure promotion to the Premier League.

Under Marcelo Bielsa, 2019-20 has been a memorable campaign for them and he has drawn high-level performances from every single player.

However, Bamford is probably right with his judgement. All these players have been consistent throughout the campaign and have never let their form dip.

Bamford has showered praise on Harrison saying he has looked like a different player this season.

“Alongside them, I would say Jack Harrison. Look at him last year to this year, you could see he had the quality with the odd bits and bobs and had the potential. This year, he looks like a different player for me,” said Bamford.

“He’s confident, he’s having more of an end result, more reliable for what will come. It will either be a good cross or a shot. Last year that wasn’t the case. I think he’s up there as well.”

The 23-year-old winger joined Leeds last season on loan from Manchester City and showed his class in bits and parts. He joined the Elland Road club on loan again from City during the summer and has shown remarkable consistency throughout the campaign.

Harrison has recently claimed that he wants to play in the Premier League with Leeds. However, if that doesn’t happen, he would try to achieve that dream with Manchester City.

When Harrison joined Leeds from City there was a clause inserted in his contract where the Whites could sign him permanently for £8 million. Surely, Leeds will take that option if they secure promotion to the Premier League at the end of the campaign.
