Marcelo Bielsa Refutes Leeds Utd New Deal Report

Marcelo Bielsa has dismissed reports of him signing a new two-year deal at Leeds.

Argentinian daily newspaper La Nacion had claimed last weekend that the club and Bielsa were ‘very close' to reaching an agreement and the news has since been circulated by other outlets.

”That information is not real,” Bielsa said. ”I ignore the origin. Those things, either the club can say or I can say it, we are the ones who possess the information.

”In all cases, if there was any information to give, then I would give it.”

Bielsa, in his third year as Leeds head coach, recently reiterated his preference for discussing his future with the club at the end of the season.

The 65-year-old signed his current 12-month contract one week before this season began after he had steered them back to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years.
