Leeds fans discuss whether Helder Costa is worth £15m transfer

Many Leeds fans were over the moon with the signing of Helder Costa last summer, but it is fair to say that for some he hasn’t lived up to expectations.

The Portuguese winger was a key player in Wolves’ 2017/18 promotion campaign and performed well for them in the Championship with 15 goals and 14 assists, but so far for Leeds, he has managed just eight goal contributions.

In his defence, he struggled for starts at the beginning of the season but he still has some work to do to convince the fanbase that he has been a good signing, and is worth the £15m outlay that the Whites are obliged to pay at the end of the season.

The question of whether the club should pay it, or rather, whether he is worth it, has sparked a debate amongst supporters, with several suggesting he has yet to prove that he is.

Their stance is understandable given he would be the most expensive player currently at the club.

One fan’s example of Jack Harrison being more consistent with 11 goal contributions yet may cost less is particularly intriguing and indicates that Costa has some improvement to do.

Some of the Leeds faithful have come to his defence and admire his quality even if he has shown it too sparingly, and perhaps if Marcelo Bielsa can boost his confidence the 24-year-old will begin to aid his team with greater regularity.

Others feel it is best to wait before delivering a final verdict on the player, with one supporter suggesting the division Leeds are playing in next year could influence whether or not Costa is a good signing.
