Leeds United completed the signing of striker Patrick Bamford from Sky Bet Championship rivals Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee on 31st July 2018, signing a four year deal with the Whites.
An England youth international, Bamford started his career with Nottingham Forest before being snapped up by Chelsea.
He had a number of loan spells away from Stamford Bridge and whilst at Middlesbrough he was named the 2014/15 Sky Bet Championship Player of the Year.
Bamford’s first season at the club was somewhat overshadowed by injuries as he spent the majority of the season on the sidelines. Despite this injury, Bamford scored 10 goals in all competitions including a memorable winning goal away to Bolton on his return to the squad.
