attacker is set to have his deal with loan club Las Palmas terminated, according to AS.

The Spanish publication claim the United speed machine, 24, is heading out of the La Liga 2 club and back to Elland Road although he may already have another loan destination in place.

AS report that Sacko is one of three players at the Canary Islands based club who is set to leave in the January window.

Good move for Leeds?

Yes. Sacko has been on the fringes of the Las Palmas team this season and has not had any first-team action since a league match on 27 October. With just five appearances in total for the Spanish second-tier outfit and only 99 minutes on the pitch, it’s fair to say things have not worked out as the winger and his club would have hoped. The Mail international needs to join a club where he is likely to get more regular game time and, if that means dropping down a level, then so be it. Sacko was reasonably impressive in his debut Leeds campaign when Garry Monk was manager, but he has subsequently struggled and was barely used last season.

Likely to happen?

It appears certain that Sacko’s Las Palmas deal will be terminated, a possibility that director of football Victor Orta raised last week. Where the pacy wide man is headed is less certain, although it is more likely to be overseas than at another English club.
