Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed he will be staying with Leeds for their first season back in the Premier League.
The Argentine guided the Whites to the top-flight for the first time in 16 years in July.
Leeds insisted that a new deal was due but a formal announcement has not been made.
However, in his speaking to the media ahead of Saturday’s season opener with Liverpool – which is LIVE on talkSPORT as part of our GameDay coverage – Bielsa said: “I will be working the next season at Leeds United.
“Everything has been sorted. It’s definite that I will be here next season.”
Bielsa said Saturday’s trip to Anfield to face Jurgen Klopp’s champions would be ‘a very special game’.

“They are one of the best teams in the world, with a fine system and very good players,” said the Argentinian.
“It’s difficult to say how our players are going to adjust to the Premier League. We have prepared for this, but we need to show it on the pitch.”
Bielsa said that he will not be changing his team’s style of play following promotion.
“To begin with we will try to play the same way,” he added.
Bielsa, 65, was appointed Leeds boss in the summer of 2018 but narrowly failed to earn promotion to the top flight as they were beaten by Derby in the play-off semi-finals.
However, they made a return with ease in 2019/20 as they won the Championship, finishing ten points clear at the top.
