Leeds United fans underwhelmed by announcement of Sacko deal

Leeds United have announced their first signing of the summer, but the supporters are not exactly bouncing off the ceiling.

Hadi Sacko has officially made his move to Elland Road permanent by signing a three-year contract.

Most of the club’s fans are rather underwhelmed considering that Sacko pretty much confirmed that he was staying put on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old winger joined the Championship club on loan last summer from Sporting Lisbon, and part of the deal included an option of a permanent contract.

The Yorkshire Evening Post claim that the club have paid between £1.5m and £2m to secure Sacko’s signature.

The winger, who made 42 appearances and scored two goals this season, is the first signing made under the new owner Andrea Radrizzani.

The transfer was completed despite the club not having a manager following the recent departure of Garry Monk.

Some fans seemed more concerned about the club’s managerial search than Sacko finalising his move, while others sarcastically expressed their shock at the transfer.
