Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has signed a new contract at the club until 2026. The striker signed a five-year contract with the club and is hoping to lead Leeds into Europe in the next couple of seasons. The striker joined the club from Middlesbrough in 2018 and has scored 43 goals in 111 appearances in all competitions. Leeds were promoted last season for the first time in 16 years. They finished a respectable ninth in the table.
“It was something that was spoken about at the end of last season, I wanted to try and get it sorted as soon as possible before this season started.” Leeds forward Patrick Bamford said. “It dragged on a bit because of the Euros, everyone was busy. It took a bit of time but I’m really happy to finally have tied down my long-term future. As a person, I’m always wanting to improve and am always chasing something else. It’s almost like we’re growing at the same rate. The club wants to get back to where it was, hopefully reaching Europe at some point, but that’s my ambition as well.”
“I always set myself targets and there are things that I would like to achieve before leaving football. And they [European football and an England call-up] are two of them.” he added. “But the main thing is to keep pushing on and being ambitious and seeing how far we can get in terms of a team and individually.”
