’s game and is a “massive fan” of the club and he has even asked Illan Meslier to get him Bamford’s jersey.
The striker told theLeeds United club podcast
"After the Fulham game he [Meslier] was like: 'I need your shirt please'. I said: 'Yeah, it's fine. Who for?' He said: 'Ah, Dembele'. I said: 'Wait, who?' He said: 'The guy from Barcelona’.
"I was like: 'What, he wants my shirt?' and he was like ‘yeah, he wants yours and Kalvin [Phillips]’s shirts because he’s a massive fan of Leeds and watches every game’.
“I was like ‘you serious?’ And I said: 'Okay, but you’ve got to get me his shirt then in return'. So, he FaceTimed me at midnight the other day and showed me this Barcelona shirt that says: 'To my bro Bamford, from Dembele’."
After his disappointing stints with Crystal Palace, Burnley, and Middlesbrough, it seems Bamford has found consistency at Leeds United as he has been able to score 14 goals through 29 league appearances this season for the club.
Dembele, meanwhile, has faced a lot of criticisms since he joined Barcelona from Dortmund in 2017.
However, he has managed to score nine goals through all competitions this season and has been a key part of his side’s improvement in recent months.
