Sports journalist Pete O’Rourke revealed on Twitter that the winger would be allowed to leave with the club in talks to sign Daniel James from Manchester United.
Soon after the news broke on Twitter, a number of Leeds supporters flocked to the website to share their thoughts on the matter.
What did these Leeds fans say?
“Music to the old ears.”
“Should never have bought Costa was a bad piece of business and it was clear to see before Leeds Bought him.”
“This makes sense. With James in he isn’t going to play.”
In recent times, it seems as though Costa hasn’t done a great deal to impress a larger selection of the Leeds fanbase.
Indeed, the 27-year-old managed just three goals in 22 Premier League appearances last campaign, which has evidently not been enough to force his way into his manager’s plans for this season, with his appearance in the Carabao Cup last week his only start of the current term to date.
