Leon Bailey, who has attracted interest from Chelsea, Liverpool and Roma, signs a new five-year deal with Bayer Leverkusen to put an end to the speculation.

In-demand winger Leon Bailey has signed a new contract with Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen that will run through until 2023.

The 21-year-old revealed earlier this month that the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool had shown a "concrete interest" in him in the past.

Roma were also said to be weighing up a £36m offer for the Jamaican-born attacker, but a move is now off the cards as Bailey has committed his future to Bayer.

A statement from the German outfit read: "Bayer 04 and Leon Bailey have agreed a contract extension. The new deal for the 21-year-old runs to 30 June 2023."

Bailey has featured 44 times for Leverkusen since joining from Genk in January 2017.
