Portuguese outlet Record have reported that Leeds were closing in on a permanent deal for the right winger after activating a £1.7million clause in his contract.
Sacko spent the whole of last season on loan and was a regular in the starting line-up.
The French winger made 42 appearances across all competitions, scoring two goals and supplying four assists.
He looks set to be given another chance in English football and will be hoping Leeds can achieve promotion.
Sacko has divided the opinion of the club’s supporters during his time as some feel his trickery and pace make him a great asset, while others are frustrated over his lack of end product.
The tricky wide man will be looking to cement his place in the side next year once a permanent deal is complete and will compete alongside the likes of Stuart Dallas, Souleymane Doukara and Kemar Roofe for a spot.
In other Leeds transfer news, the club’s supporters reacted to speculation that Giuseppe Bellusci’s proposed move is in doubt.
