Patrick Bamford has revealed that he would like to stay with Leeds United for the 'next five years' after a successful time in West Yorkshire.

The former Chelsea player had six separate loan spells while a player at Stamford Bridge and seems keen to settle down and establish himself with one club.

Bamford played for three Premier League clubs in a two-season spell on loan – making single figure appearances for Crystal Palace, Norwich and Burnley.

I would be delighted to be here for the foreseeable future.

Having finally left the London outfit, the Grantham-born frontman joined Middlesbrough for just one season, before moving to Elland Road in July 2018.

The 26-year-old is among the Championship's leading scorers this season, with 13 goals, and despite mixed reviews from the fans, Marcelo Bielsa has stuck by the striker in the Whites' promotion bid.

The former England international appears very happy at his current home and has aspirations of a long-term stay with the Yorkshire club.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Bamford said: "I don't think I've ever been at a club and been as settled in terms of the area. I'm close to my family, I love the club, the training ground, I love the lads. Everything about it is perfect.

"So for me, I would be delighted to be here for the foreseeable future, in terms of the next five years, and see what we can achieve."

Bamford has two years remaining on his current contract and feels Leeds are the kind of club that will "stay in the Premier League" once they get back to the top flight.

Meanwhile, England are 6.00 to win Euro 2020.
