Leeds United have been dealt more positive news today with it emerging that Bailey Peacock-Farrell is likely to remain at the club after all, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Leeds United’s new boss Garry Monk has been waiting to discover if he will have one of the club’s young players at his disposal next season.

The 19-year-old has been offered the new two-year deal and was asked to get back to Leeds last month, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

That deadline passed as Peacock-Farrell sought assurances over the club’s direction. His current deal expires on the 30th June at which point he would become a free agent.

But now it is being reported that the teenager will sign a new deal in the next 24 hours, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

It is reported that the three reasons behind his indecision were concern over first-team football, the head coach role and the lack of a goalkeeper coach.

Those issues have seemingly been put to bed and now the teenager looks set to sign his two-year extension.

Monk would have surely steadied nerves on one of those issues – after being confirmed as the new manager recently.

The YEP report also claims Monk is in the process of settling another. Monk is said to be looking for a new goalkeeper coach to replace the outgoing Richard Hartis – who has joined the England youth set-up.

Monk has previously worked with Tony Roberts at Swansea City but he remains at the Liberty Stadium and it would be strange to see him leave at this moment in time. No official interest in the Swansea goalkeeper is known of but he would seem a likely target for Monk.

But it appears the appointment of a new manager has convinced Peacock-Farrell to stick with Leeds for now.
