Winger Leon Bailey has signed a new deal with Bayer Leverkusen that will keep him under contract with the Bundesliga club for the next five years.

A number of other European teams have been rumoured to have an interest in the 21-year-old, who has scored 12 goals and provided seven assists in his 44 appearances for Leverkusen.

Bailey's previous deal ran out in 2022, but Leverkusen have agreed fresh terms on a new contract that will last until June 2023.

Bailey joined Leverkusen from Belgian club Genk in January 2017.
