Leeds United complete Helder Costa signing

Wolves forward joins Leeds.

Helder Costa has today joined Leeds United from Wolverhampton Wanderers on an initial one year loan deal, which will become a permanent transfer next summer for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old has agreed a four year contract with the Whites, which will run until the summer of 2024.

The Portuguese international began his career at Benfica before having loan spells at Deportivo La Coruna and AS Monaco, ahead of joining Wolves in 2016, initially on a temporary basis.

After a successful period at Molineux during the 2016/17 campaign where he was named Player of the Season, Wolves signed him permanently for a then club record transfer fee.

Costa went on to play a key part in the team that won the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship and last term made 30 appearances in all competitions as Wolves finished seventh in the Premier League.

A tricky winger who can also play as a centre forward, Costa made his international debut for Portugal last year, scoring the opening goal in a 3-1 win against Scotland at Hampden Park.

He will wear the number 17 shirt for Whites and becomes Leeds’ fourth signing of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of Jack Harrison, Ben White and Liam McCarron earlier this week.
