Leeds United midfielder Madger Gomes has joined French Ligue 2 side FC Sochaux-Montbeliard on a permanent deal, as announced by the official club website.
Madger Gomes joined Leeds on a free transfer after he was released by Liverpool last summer.
The Spaniard went on to make just two appearances for the Whites last season, both in the Carabao Cup.
According to Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay, a small fee was involved in the transfer.
Although Gomes wasn’t afforded much opportunity to shine, it was clear that the Leeds hierarchy didn’t think he was cut out for this level, and a move to a mid-table French Ligue 2 side reflects this.
It is the first transfer business Leeds have conducted this summer and fans will be hoping it sparks a wave of activity for the club.
Gomes was only one year into a three-year deal, so the transfer will help reduce the wage bill and hopefully raise a few funds for their summer transfer kitty.
