Leeds extend contract of Marcelo Bielsa

Leeds United have extended the contract of manager Marcelo Bielsa.

The Mirror reports the Championship club exercised the option to extend the Argentine's stay in Yorkshire for another season after he narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League this campaign.

Bielsa met with Leeds chiefs following defeat in the play-off semi final against Derby to discuss his future.

The Argentine initially put pen to paper on a two-year deal at Elland Road, which would be reviewed after his first season.

Leeds, who had the right to terminate Bielsa's contract, have opted to extend the Argentine's stay.
