According to The Sun., Leeds United is set to hand England forward Patrick Bamford a new deal that will keep him on Elland Road beyond the summer of 2022.
The 27-year-old currently has only 18 months left of his £ 35,000-a-week contract with the Yorkshire giants, and the club fears his Premier League form could start to attract the big shots.
He will be free to negotiate with foreign clubs next January if a new deal has not been concluded by then, and the whites want to start the discussion on new terms very soon.
Bamford has amassed 10 goals and helped another two in 17 top-flight matches for Leeds since they sealed promotion last summer after a 14-year wait, and has shown he has what it takes to lead the line in the Premier League.
He scored just 16 league goals for Marcelo Bielsa’s team in the Championship last season and bagged just nine in his debut season at the club.
With 21 games to play in 2020-21, Bamford is on track to surpass his 17-goal league tally in a season that occurred during his first season with Middlesbrough, and clubs could be keeping an eye on him before the summer transfer. . window.
The Leeds star spent five years in the Chelsea books but failed to make a first-team appearance for the Blues.
He was loaned to MK Dons, Middlesbrough, Norwich City, Derby County, Crystal Palace, and Burnley before finally being flogged to Boro in January 2017.
Since then, Bamford has scored against Chelsea and Liverpool at the top flight in Leeds colors, and also had a striking performance in the 3-0 demolition of Aston Villa that was inspired by his hat-trick.
The Elland Road team cannot afford to lose one of their best players anytime soon, and they are expected to hand him a much needed and well deserved lucrative contract.
