Bielsa not expecting new signing as Bamford commits future to Leeds

Leeds United manager, Marcelo Bielsa, has revealed that he is not expecting the club to sign a new player before the end of the transfer window at the end of this month.

This comes after striker, Partick Bamford, 27, committed his future at the West Yorkshire club by signing a new five-year deal, keeping him at Elland Road until the summer of 2026.

Speaking on new additions, Bielsa said that although the club has the option of signing new players, there would be a disappointment if the new additions are not up to standard.

SkySports quoted Bielsa as saying, “It’s not probable that any more signings will be made.

“I’m comfortable with the players I can count on at the moment. It’s the same group as last year with the substitution of Firpo in for Alioski.

“Young players on the fringes have another year of experience. Of course, we have the option to bring another player in, as long as that player is able to challenge the player we already have in that position.

“That means there is a very high cost to this. If [new] players don’t arrive there’s disappointment. If there are signings, but they are below the level we already have, there’s also disappointment because they’re not up to the standard.

“The situation is to find players who can overcome the players we already have and at a low price. But a low price also means a ‘high price’.”
