Bamford is spearheading Leeds’ attack with 15 goals and eight assists to his name from 35 outings so far in the current Premier League campaign.


It appeared the hitman was set to enter the final year of his stint at Elland Road after the current campaign with his initial four-year deal running out in the summer of 2022.



But Bamford’s contract at Leeds will only expire in June 2023 as he put pen-to-paper on a one-year contract extension last summer.


Leeds’ hierarchy have been pleased with the 27-year-old’s performance this season and are keen on extending his stint on fresh terms.



The striker is yet to enter talks with Leeds over a new deal with his long-term future at the Yorkshire giants under the scanner but as things stand, he is set to stay there for an additional season more than initially believed.


Bamford scored in Leeds’ 3-1 league win against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, ending a five-game goalless run.



The hitman will be keen on adding more to his tally in the Whites’ remaining three games of the season as he aims to get as close as he can to the 20-goal mark.
