Patrick Bamford has revealed he feels Leeds United are the ‘perfect club’ for him to be at after being asked questions about his future.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, the forward stated that he was delighted at finally becoming settled and admitted that he is more than happy being with the Whites.
“I don’t see why not,” he said.
“Being so settled is nice. It is something that I had always wanted, I had always wanted to be the main No 9 somewhere, to get that chance and to get settled and it’s a nice place to settle in to be honest.
“I live just outside the city, 20 minutes to get into town, I like living in the countryside, the people at the club are brilliant and the fans are brilliant. It’s the perfect club, it’s got everything.”
Bamford did not have the best of debut campaigns for Leeds last season, as injuries and poor performances appeared to have an impact on the displays he provided Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Having completed a deal worth around £10m for him last summer (BBC), the 26-year-old missed 22 games because of injuries to his cruciate ligaments and knee, limiting him to just 25 appearances that season and netting ten goals across all competitions (Transfermarkt).
Bielsa appeared to have been delighted with a goal that Bamford, who is valued at £5.4m by Transfermarkt, had scored during training last season when recovering from his injury setbacks (AS) and it appears the forward has been able to show just exactly why the Argentine was celebrating wildly.
The striker has been in red-hot form for Leeds this time around, having netted four goals in his first seven appearances across all competitions this season and appears to be keeping the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Helder Costa at bay.
Hearing that Bamford is settled could benefit Leeds hugely as they look to continue their push for Premier League football this season.
Bielsa lamented their inability to finish their chances last season and cited it as a reason as to why they failed to win promotion to the Premier League, however it would seem the 26-year-old has found his finishing boots at the right time for the Whites.
