After negotiations with Derby for Vydra stalled, Leeds have moved on to Boro striker Patrick Bamford. Boro only signed Bamford in January 2017 but hasn’t been quite as successful as he’d have hoped, scoring 13 times in 44 appearances last season. I personally would be very happy with this move, he’s more of a natural striker than Vydra, which is something we’re desperately lacking.
He’s under contract until 2021 and Boro are unlikely to give him away to a rival, if Leeds do pull this one off it’ll be a great sign of intent. Although Bamford hasn’t been able to make the cut at Premier League level, he’s had some consistently good periods in the Championship for Derby and Boro, as well as a prolific spell at MK Dons in League One.
After a serious dry spell, it seems Leeds are finally starting to make some moves in the transfer market. Let us know what you think about Bamford arriving at Elland Road!
