Leeds United confirmed yesterday that Helder Costa has joined the club on a permanent deal from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Premier League outfit loaned out the Portuguese winger last summer to Leeds with a view to making it permanent in 2020.

The 26-year-old has signed a four-year deal at Elland Road that will keep him at the club till 2024.

According to reports from Leeds Live, the total outlay of the deal is around £15m, which will be paid off in instalments across the length of his contract.

Costa has scored three goals and provided three assists from his 40 league appearances in 2019/20. And Leeds fans are divided in opinions about the winger.

While a section of the fans feel that Costa will turn out to be a brilliant signing especially under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa, there are others who feel it is a complete waste of money.

Here are some of the selected tweets:






Costa had to wait for his chance at Elland since making the move last summer.

Initially, he was used as a sub and did not make his full league debut for United until September 28. Since then he has been a regular starter for Leeds.

Leeds will take on Stoke City in their next Championship game on Thursday.
