Leeds United have agreed a deal with Middlesbrough over the transfer of Patrick Bamford, according to The Mirror (Transfer Live blog, 13:24pm, Saturday, July 28, 2018).

It has been reported that Leeds and Middlesbrough have agreed on a fee of £7 million for the transfer of the former Nottingham Forest striker from the Whites to Boro in the summer transfer window.

Good signing for Leeds United?

Bamford is a very good striker, and the 24-year-old is proven at the Championship level and would be a good signing for Leeds.
