Sam Greenwood agrees new contract with the Whites

New long-term deal signed.

Leeds United are delighted to confirm that Sam Greenwood has signed a new contract at the club, until the summer of 2026.

The versatile 20-year-old, who can operate both in midfield and attack, has impressed since joining the club in 2020.

He initially linked up with the Under-23s side and played a key part as the team steamrolled to promotion from Premier League 2 Division 2 as champions, during the 2020/21 campaign. 

From there, Greenwood progressed into the first team and played for the senior squad against previous side Arsenal in the League Cup. He then followed that up with his Premier League debut at Elland Road, also against the Gunners.

With the team looking for inspiration after being two-goals down away at Wolves in March, Greenwood came off the bench and made a huge impact on the game, playing a key part in two goals as the Whites staged a late comeback to earn a vital three points.

In his next game, another superb contribution was seen when he came onto the pitch away at Watford, with the team securing another huge three points in a match Greenwood also impacted heavily on, helping the team to retain their status in the Premier League.

Greenwood has made 10 appearances overall in the first team for Leeds United and he will now go into the new season looking to gain further experience and knowledge, developing under Jesse Marsch and his backroom staff.

Director of Football Victor Orta gave his thoughts, saying: “We are delighted to see Sam sign a new deal with the club.

“We knew when we brought him here from Arsenal that he was a top talent. He went on to impress in the Under-23s and finally up in the first team, showing a lot of versatility. We look forward to watching his career unfold at Elland Road.”
