With great pleasure, Leeds United announces that Patrick Bamford has agreed to a new deal.

The 27-year-old has signed a new five-year contract that will keep him at Elland Road through the 2026 summer.

After moving to West Yorkshire in July 2018, Bamford signed with the team from Middlesbrough. In 111 games since then, he has scored an amazing 43 goals.

Due to injury, the striker only made 25 appearances in his debut season. However, in his second season, he was a vital member of Marcelo Bielsa’s team that won the Sky Bet Championship, playing in all but one of Leeds’ 46 league games as the Whites won the division by a 10-point margin.

In the club’s first campaign back in the top-flight in 16 years last season, Bamford hit 17 goals in 38 Premier League outings, including a stunning hat-trick against Aston Villa.

His fine performances helped the Whites finish in ninth spot and led to calls for him to be involved in Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad, which he narrowly missed out on.

The forward made his first league appearance of the 2021/22 campaign last Saturday and could feature once again this weekend as the Whites take on Everton at Elland Road.

He joins fellow teammates Stuart Dallas and Illan Meslier in pledging his future to the club this summer.
