Marcelo Bielsa will remain at Elland Road for another season after penning a new contract.

Marcelo Bielsa

Leeds United fans can expect to see the Bielsa bucket at Elland Road for another season after 'El Loco' committed his future at the club.

Marcelo Bielsa has declared his contract situation at the Whites is 'resolved' ahead of their Premier League opener away to rivals Manchester United on Saturday. He will remain at Leeds for another 12 months. 

As you can imagine, Leeds fans are delighted…

Leeds have also invested in Bielsa's playing squad this summer, making Jack Harrison's loan from Manchester City permanent, bringing in Junior Firpo from Barcelona, and also completing deals for youngsters Amari Miller, Lewis Bate, Kristoffer Klaesson and Sean McGurk.

Though they continue to be linked with other deals, Bielsa declared himself happy with his current options.

"I'm satisfied with the group I'm working with," he said.

"I couldn't tell you about hypothetical situations, but what I can tell you is the group of players I have I'm happy with."

Does that mean no more signings then Marcelo?

Joe Willock

Newcastle will finally get their man after agreeing a fee with Arsenal but one fan is still less than impressed by Mike Ashley.

James Ward-Prowse

Looking in from the outside, Southampton have a tough season ahead.

First, they lost key man Danny Ings to Aston Villa and it seems like their free-kick specialist James Ward-Prowse could be the latest player to depart.

It is believed Tottenham and Villa are battling for his signature.

And we thought Theo Walcott would paper over the cracks…

Jannik Vestergaard

It doesn't stop there for Saints fans. Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl expects defender Jannik Vestergaard to complete the formalities of his move to Leicester ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

It's going to be a long season. Don't rule out another 9-0 drubbing and don't rule out Hasenhuttl getting emotional when his team beats Norwich 1-0 to save him his job.

Raphael Varane

It appears the Frenchman won't be in contention to play against Leeds on Saturday with his announcement on hold.

Talk about taking your time to announce a major signing…

Alexandre Lacazette

Roma may turn to the Arsenal forward with Tammy Abraham undecided on joining Jose Mourinho's side.

One Gooner would rather see the back of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
