Time to bid farewell: Why Leeds flop should not be offered a new contract
COMMENT by Amir Mir
Many Leeds fans will be wanting to hear the news that manager Garry Monk has signed a new contract or Kyle Bartley has penned a permanent deal at the club.
One player who is already heading for the exit door and fans should bid farewell to is the inconsistent winger, Hadi Sacko.
The 23-year-old was on a season-long loan at Elland Road and it is fair to assess that he has well and truly flopped during his time at the club.
Frustrating and annoying would be the words to describe the Frenchman on the field of play as he failed to make any sort of impact.
Pace can paper over the cracks of players and that was definitely the case with Sacko, who featured on a regular basis for Monk this season.

His burst of pace down the wing or on the counter attack would lift the fans off their feet, but his inability to find a pass or make the correct decisions, let him down badly on a number of occasions.
Striker Chris Wood scored 30 goals in all competitions and finished the campaign as the top scorer in the Championship.
Sacko had the perfect player to supply passes to but his inability to link up with teammates and his pure arrogance to not pass the ball to someone in a more advanced position, was another letdown.
During his 38 Championship games, Sacko scored two goals and supplied four assists and from December onwards, he failed to provide anything of note in the attacking third.
It is fair to say that the Leeds attacker should not be offered a new contract or a permanent deal to stay with the club when his loan deal officially expires in the summer.
