Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has signed a new deal with the Yorkshire outfit.
A look at the FA’s intermediary transactions list published in March – covering February 1, 2020, to February 1, 2021 – shows an “updated registration” for the 27-year-old.
While it appeared that Bamford had just a year left on the four-year deal he signed when he joined Leeds from Middlesbrough, the club have made their move in silence and he has secretly signed a new deal.
According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, the Leeds star actually signed a one-year contract extension last summer and is now tied to the club until June 2023.
Liverpool admire Bamford, and manager Jurgen Klopp was full of praises for him before last month’s draw between both sides.
The new deal would not prevent the Leeds star from being sold if a suitable bid arrived from the Reds or other clubs keeping an eye on him, though.
However, it puts the Elland Road outfit in a comfortable and commanding position ahead of any negotiations going forward.
