The Athletic’s Phil Hay has provided an update on Marcelo Bielsa’s future at Leeds United that has been very well received by supporters.

Hay reports that people close to the Argentine say Bielsa has plans to stick around at Elland Road.

His current deal expires in the summer.

Bielsa has only ever signed one-year contracts since arriving in West Yorkshire but this news hints at a longer-term deal.

And the accompanying report reiterates that Bielsa is planning for the long-haul, is committed and is already planning the summer trabnsfers.

It is no wonder the fanbase is so excited – and it is exactly what was needed after the disappointing loss to Wolves.

We are not too surprised by the development, either, as Bielsa has spoken of his support for Andrea Radrizzani’s plans for the future.

The Leeds owner wants to emulate Leicester’s strategy for success and has an eye on European qualification.

Bielsa backs that project and it seems he wants to be the man who leads us on that journey.

And achieving that goal would only confirm his status as a Leeds hero.

Bielsa may transform us from a mid-table Championship outfit into a European side by the end of his fourth year.

He is worth every penny of his new deal and we are delighted that he remains happy as Leeds boss.

It is really quite remarkable what Bielsa has achieved with us, and the reactions shown below highlight how much he is appreciated.
