2nd Leeds star agrees new contract


Another member of the first-team setup at Premier League outfit Leeds United has put pen to paper on fresh terms, it has been announced.

The player in question? Diego Llorente.

Central defender Llorente has continued to play an important role in west Yorkshire across the season to date.

Across Leeds’ 14 league fixtures, the Spaniard has featured from the off in half, alongside a pair of starts in the League Cup, too.

It therefore shouldn’t come as a major surprise, late on Friday, to hear of Llorente’s terms at Elland Road being extended through the summer of 2026.

In an official announcement across the club’s social media platforms a short time ago, it was confirmed that:

‘Leeds United are pleased to announce Diego Llorente has signed a new contract with the club.

‘The Spaniard has penned a three-and-a-half-year extension at Elland Road, running until the summer of 2026.’

Confirmation of Llorente’s new contract comes fresh off another key member of Jesse Marsch’s squad committing his long-term future to Leeds, after Pascal Struijk did likewise earlier in the week:
