Leeds United have announced their return to the Premier League in some fashion.

After giving Premier League champions Liverpool a fright in their first top-flight game in 16 years, Marcelo Bielsa's side have beaten Fulham, Sheffield United and Everton as well as held Manchester City and Arsenal.

They have, however, lost their last two matches, and head into Wednesday's game against Newcastle United a place below the Magpies in 14th place.

Bielsa's squad has been bolstered with additions in defence and attack. Goalkeeper Illan Meslier and centre-back Robin Koch have added quality while the marquee signing of Spain international Rodrigo from Valencia looks shrewd.

But it is a player who many doubted could cut it in the Premier League who has proved the biggest success story so far.

Patrick Bamford scored in each of his first three top-flight games and at the time of publishing has eight league goals.

But is he Elland Road's best-paid player?

According to Spotrac, and online sports team and player contract website lists the 27-year-old Englishman as earning a weekly wage of £35,000 ($45,147).

That amounts to an annual salary of just over £1.8 million.
