There are plenty of romours that he signed a three year deal in 2017, but the club never confirmed that length of that contract, anyone know?

When Eddie extended his contract in December 2017 he increased his salary by 650%.

Given the substantial rise it's safe to assume he signed a long-term deal which runs until 2022—or even 2023.

Quite the composed finish. I know a lot of people are writing him off, but he's developing very well so far.

Is it fun being this cynical about everything? Do you really believe Ian Wright spend half of his day travelling to Leeds and watching a game just so he could get a photo with Nketiah and get some attention?

Listen to yourself.

BBC

Eddie Nketiah: Leeds United's on-loan Arsenal striker grateful to 'mentor' Ian Wright

Leeds United striker Eddie Nketiah has said that getting advice from Arsenal legend Ian Wright is "a dream come true".

The 20-year-old joined the Championship side on a season-long loan from the Gunners earlier this month.

Wright, who scored 185 goals for Arsenal, was in the stands to see Nketiah score the winner at Elland Road in the 1-0 win over Brentford.

"Ian's a massive help and nice to have around," he told BBC Radio Leeds.

"I did some promotion shoots with him and we got really close. He's taken a real liking to me and it's a dream come true because as a kid I've always looked up to him and watched his clips.

"For him to be taking such an active role in supporting and coming to watch the games is great because he gives me lots of advice, like a mentor.

"I just try to learn everything I can from him because he had such a great career.

"He's a really nice guy and easy person to talk to. He makes life easier for me."



Nketiah has scored three goals in four appearances for Marcelo Bielsa's side.

The England Under-21 international was wanted by a number of clubs prior to joining the Whites and credited the club's fans for deciding to make the move to Yorkshire.

"The fans are crazy. They're great and they've taken to me so quickly and even before I joined they were giving me so much support on social media," he added.

"I did my research about the club and heard about how the fans turned out. I'm excited to keep playing in front of them and give my all."

So what we were all hoping Wrighty would do with Welbeck, he's doing with Eddie. I fully support it.

Hope the kid makes it.

Wrighty done nothing in football for the past twenty years. All he does is pretend to be a superfan on Tv which is frankly nauseating. Nice to see Eddie’s a well mannered guy who is giving him respect whether warranted or not.

:scratch: You can't really do much in professional football when you're retired.

Also, not every former player has the ambition to become manager or director of football.
