Leeds United forward Souleymane Doukara has confirmed he’s extended his contract with the Championship side. The 25-year-old joined Leeds United from Catania in 2014 after signing a 3 year contract with the Elland Road club.

BBC Journalist Adam Pope has revealed via Twitter Doukara will be at Leeds United next season after extending his current deal for another 12 months. The Frenchman today confirmed he’s committed himself to Leeds United for another 12 months, with his current deal set to expire in the summer.

Doukara initially signed for Leeds United on season long loan, but after impressing in pre-season the player was given a permanent transfer by Massimo Cellino. The attacker was among a number of players that arrived from Italy in 2014 with Cellino and his sporting director Nicola Salerno adopting a policy of recruiting from Serie A and B.

Many of those Italy based players like Mirco Antentucci and Tommasso Bianchi have now left Leeds United, but Doukara is one of those that remains.
