Leeds fans react on Twitter to report 23-year-old attacker deal is close

By Derek Smithson

Leeds are reportedly close to completing the signing of Hadi Sacko – and the club’s supporters are divided on Twitter about his return to Elland Road.

The 23-year-old attacker spent a season-long loan with the Whites this campaign from Portuguese club Sporting.

Record claim that Leeds have now decided to trigger a £1.7million clause in his contract to complete a permanent deal for the French winger.

The report details that the deal is close and is expected to be completed by next week.

Sacko looks set to join permanently following on from his first season in English football and will be targeting promotion with the Yorkshire giants next year.

Leeds fans have given a mixed response on Twitter to the report and can’t make their mind up on whether it will be a good deal.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Sacko endured a mixed first year with Leeds in the Championship and may be disappointed with is statistics.

The right winger managed just two goals and four assists in 42 appearances, but has proven elsewhere that he can be far more prolific in front of goal.

He will have to wait until the appointment of a new manager before finding out his role at the club for next season, but several fans have pointed to the fact that he still has time on his side.

However, owner Andrea Radrizzani seems intent on getting the club back into the Premier League and will be demanding Leeds are pushing for promotion.

In other Leeds transfer news, they have made an emphatic decision about signing Jonny Howson.
