Leeds announced the capture of Hadi Sacko on Tuesday – and Whites supporters seem pretty chuffed with the club’s third summer signing.
The Sporting Lisbon attacker joins on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent deal and becomes Garry Monk’s third summer signing.
Leeds were seriously lacking in the pace and winger department last season with Jordan Botaka the only out and out wide man in the starting eleven by season’s end.
Monk’s revolution at Elland Road seems to be finally building up steam and Whites fans are delighted to see such a prospect arrive at the club.
@miimosaa can't wait to see you get on that pitch in the Leeds colours welcome to the lufc family mot sacko💙💛💙💛💙💛💙

Nobody had heard about this Sacko guy and now everybody is an expert. Enough with the hot takes. #LUFC

In fairness to Sacko, he hasn't got a lot to live up to in terms of recent #lufc wingers.
Kebe, Stewart, Carayol, Ariyibi etc.

Acceleration, lightening pace, skill, versatile. Can't really get better traits for a young hungry player. Welcome to @LUFC Mr Sacko!

Think we should let this Sacko guy kick a ball before we all become experts because we have seen his FIFA rating. #lufc

Hadi Sacko? File in the "wait and see" column. Good to have options up front, I guess, but 2 loans in 3 signings tells its own story. #lufc

Leeds did every Whites supporter a favour by tweeting out the youngster’s Twitter handle and Sacko was quick yo return some of the love he was receiving.
Very excited to be part of this new chapter of @LUFC . I'll give my 1000% to succeed here 🙏🏾⚽❤

Of course, there’s always one joker out there.
Hadi Sacko sounds like what's happened to half of our backroom staff over last year #lufc

In fairness Wayne, it was hanging in the air for him to smash it.
