Patrick Bamford is close to agreeing terms on a new contract with Leeds United, according to The Athletic.
The 27-year-old striker moved to Elland Road from Middlesbrough in 2018 for around £10 million.
Bamford has proven to be a superb signing for Leeds, although it wasn’t until last season when he really came into his own.
The former Chelsea and Middlesbrough ace racked up 17 goals and eight assists in 38 Premier League games for Leeds.
Bamford is absolutely vital to how Marcelo Bielsa’s side set up to play.
Not only is he a technically gifted striker, but he is also great when playing with his back to goal and bringing others into play.
Patrick Bamford close to new Leeds deal
The Athletic claims that talks over a new contract for Bamford are progressing really well.
It will be vital for Leeds to get the striker tied down to a new long-term deal, with his current one set to expire in just 12 months.
Leeds fans love Bamford. At 27, he will undoubtedly continue to improve.
It seems as though he will be plying his trade at Elland Road for quite some time yet, and that’s great news for Leeds.
The club will be pushing for European qualification next season, and Bamford will be expected to play a crucial role in their efforts.
