Revealed: Leeds confident of keeping home-grown star being offered new deal
Leeds United are set to offer a new contract to home-grown star Bailey Peacock-Farrell this summer, Football Insider understands.
The Elland Road number two goalkeeper is about to enter the final year of the three-year agreement he signed in July 2017.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider the club are confident of keeping hold of the Northern Ireland international, who made such a sound impression when catapulted into the team in March of last year.
Peacock-Farrell lost his starting role when Kiko Casilla joined from Real Madrid in the January window.
But Marcelo Bielsa showed great faith in him in the first half of the recently-completed campaign after giving him the early nod over Chelsea loanee Jamal Blackman.
Peacock-Farrell made 28 league appearances, conceding just 32 goals and keeping 10 clean sheets, as well as one in the League Cup.
