Leeds United are on course for their biggest transfer in over a decade, with Middlesbrough striker Patrick Bamford expected to finalise a £7 million move away from Teesside in the near future.

A popular figure at the Riverside, Bamford's departure has prompted real concern among Middlesbrough fans, but Leeds supporters are keen to see if the new man can spearhead a promotion charge.

Bamford would likely link up with former teammates Lewis Baker and Jack Harrison, who both spent last season on loan with Tony Pulis' side - Baker has already made the switch to Elland Road, and Harrison is expected to follow suit.

So what should fans expect of the 24-year-old?
