Hadi Sacko has claimed Leeds will not settle for fourth place in the Championship table after beating Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
Sacko, 22, featured from the off in the Yorkshire giants’ 1-0 win over Carlos Carvalhal’s Wednesday, as Chris Wood scored his 23rd goal of the season to secure all three points.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, speed machine Sacko admitted the win was “not pretty” and has told fans that Leeds are “not going to stop” despite climbing back up to fourth.

Sporting Lisbon loanee Sacko started on the right flank alongside attacking midfielders Souleymane Doukara and Pablo Hernandez, before being taken off in the 71st minute.
The win sees Leeds rise into fourth place, leapfrogging Jaap Stam’s Reading who face automatic promotion candidates Brighton on Saturday evening.
Sacko is currently looking to prove to manager Garry Monk that he deserves to stay at Elland Road beyond his season-long loan, which expires in the summer.
Leeds’ number 24 has excited fans this term on the flank, having a hand in six goals during his 33 league and cup encounters. Scoring two of those, Sacko has also provided four assists.
Monk’s side will be hoping to build on Saturday’s win with an away victory at Gianfranco Zola’s Birmingham City on Friday night.
