Leeds United round-up: Bamford close, Forshaw injury blow and Las Palmas victory

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Bamford deal

It appears Leeds United are closing in on the signing of a new striker. Patrick Bamford looks like being the man to head to Elland Road. The club have apparently agreed a fee with the player’s club Middlesbrough, which is likely to be around £10 million – according to Teesside Live.

Bamford is now set for talks with Leeds, who hope to sign him this week.

A move for Bamford comes after deals for Abel Hernandez and Matej Vydra both fell apart due to wage demands.

Forshaw injured

Adam Forshaw has picked up an injury and could be out for some time. The Yorkshire Evening Post reported he has suffered a toe problem, which ruled him out of the club’s final pre-season friendly with Las Palmas this weekend.


The problem will reportedly be further assessed tomorrow as Leeds sweat on the midfield dynamo being fit for the opening game of the season against Stoke City.

Roofe to the rescue

Leeds United won their final pre-season game against Las Palmas this afternoon. The Whites played out something of a drab affair and came away with a 1-0 win.

They were left fortunate in the first-half as Las Palmas hit the bar twice. But Kemar Roofe scored late on to give Leeds the win.

The Whites will, however, know improvements will be needed before facing Stoke City next weekend.
