Newly promoted EPL side, Leeds United have confirmed that head coach Marcelo Bielsa has signed a new one-year deal with the club.

Bielsa’s previous deal expired at the end of 2019/20, but fresh terms have finally been agreed with the Argentine after months of talks.

The 65-year-old masterminded Leeds’ return to the Premier League after winning the Championship last season – ending a 16 year absence.

“I will be working the next season at Leeds United,” he confirmed at Thursday’s pre-match news conference.

“Everything has been sorted and it’s definite I will be here this season, but like with every negotiation, nothing is done until it’s done.”
