Leeds United extend Patrick Bamford’s contract until 2026

Leeds United announced on Thursday the renewal of 27-year-old striker Patrick Bamford’s contract for the next five years until the end of June 2026.

Bamford moved to Leeds in 2018 from Middlesbrough and scored 43 goals in 111 appearances.

Last season, the England international scored 17 goals and assisted 8 goals in 38 Premier League games, including a hat-trick against Aston Villa.

With this renewal, Bamford joined his colleagues who renewed their contracts with the club Stewart Dallas and Ilan Mesler.

The striker was limited to 25 games in his first season due to injury but went on to play a key role in helping Marcelo Bielsa’s team win the First Division “Championship” in his second season.

Where he participated in all matches except one. Leeds’ 46 matches won the league by 10 points.

In the club’s first Premier League season in 16 years last season:

Bamford has scored 17 goals in 38 Premier League games including a stunning hat-trick against Aston Villa.

His impressive performance helped the Whites finish ninth and lead to an invitation to Gareth Southgate’s team for Euro 2020, which he narrowly missed.

The striker made his league debut in the 2021/02 season last Saturday and could make an appearance again this weekend when the Whites face Everton at Island Road.
