Striker joins the club on a four year deal.
Leeds United are delighted to announce the signing of striker Patrick Bamford for an undisclosed fee.
Bamford joins Leeds from Sky Bet Championship rivals Middlesbrough and has penned a four year deal at Elland Road, running until the summer of 2022.
The 24-year-old started his career at Nottingham Forest, before being snapped up by Chelsea in January 2011.
He had a number of temporary spells away from Stamford Bridge and thrived during a season-long loan at Middlesbrough during the 2014/15 season, where he netted 17 goals in the Championship, helping them reach the Play-Off Final and was named the league’s Player of the Year.
Bamford then had loans in the Premier League with Crystal Palace, Norwich City and Burnley, before re-joining Middlesbrough on a permanent basis in January 2017.
Last season Bamford made a total of 44 appearances for Boro and scored a hat-trick the last time he faced Leeds United at the Riverside Stadium in March, which was part of a prolific run where he scored nine goals in seven games.
He has also won youth caps for England at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level.
Bamford will wear the number nine shirt during his time at Elland Road and could make his Leeds United debut in Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship opener with Stoke City.
