Leeds forward Patrick Bamford says he's "enjoying playing football again" after a positive start to 2024.

The 30 year-old made his first start of the season on New Years Day, and has scored four goals and grabbed one assist in his six games in 2024.

"I'm feeling good," Bamford told the club's website. "I'm happy and I'm just enjoying playing football again. That was a big thing for me.

"Now it's just about getting back into it and getting a run of games under by belt. I always said, that I believed I would score when I played."

On the Leeds' fans, Bamford said: “Honestly, they’ve been fantastic. They’ve been brilliant home and away, and that’s been important for us, as we’re going to need them for the games that we’ve got coming up during the remainder of the season.

“I just want to carry on playing, playing well and doing everything I can for the side. Then obviously we all know what the team’s aim is, so it’s just about how I can help us get there.”
