Former Leeds United star Jon Newsome believes Marcelo Bielsa signing a two-year contract would be “amazing” for the club.
The Argentine has enjoyed a superb season at the helm at Elland Road, guiding the club to a top-half finish in their first campaign back in the top-flight following promotion.
However, he has yet to sign a new contract, as he continually pens one-year extensions every season.
It has been suggested by The Sun that Bielsa has already agreed the terms on a one-year new deal at Elland Road and that an announcement is imminent.
Bielsa had denied the prospect of him signing a longer-term deal back in April, but Newsome has suggested that he could well put pen to paper on a two-year contract in the coming weeks.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “Undoubtedly well-deserved and there is talk that it may be a two year deal instead of a one year deal which would be amazing for the club really and add a bit more security.”
Bielsa has never spent more than two years at a club, but he is now into his third year at Leeds, and it is almost certain that he’ll be with the club for at least one more season, if not two.
