'Terrible footballer', Got to sign better' - Leeds fans react to speculation club want to sign forward

By Matt Farr

Leeds are reportedly set to pursue a permanent deal for Hadi Sacko this summer – and fans on Twitter hope that they pull the plug.

The club confirmed on their official website on Wednesday that the 23-year-old wide forward was set to return to his parent club at the end of the season.

However, Phil Hay, chief football writer for the Yorkshire Evening Post later reported on his personal Twitter account that he expects Leeds to ‘pursue’ a permanent move for Sacko.

Sacko scored just two goals and supplied four assists from his 42 appearances in all competitions for Leeds this season, having joined on a season-long loan from Sporting Lisbon last summer.

But Leeds fans don’t think that the attacker did enough to convince them he would be worth the club’s time and money this summer, and took to social media to deliver their verdicts on the potential deal.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Whilst criticising Sacko for his lack of impact for the club, Leeds fans made it abundantly clear they would prefer to see a permanent move made for fellow loan star Alfonso Pedraza.

Hay also revealed that Leeds could also pursue a permanent deal for defender Kyle Bartley, who spent the season on loan at Elland Road from Premier League side Swansea.

In other Leeds United news, an offer has been tabled for this 23-year-old defender, but a reliable journalist has revealed there is more to the deal than meets the eye.
