Leeds United: Fans flock as Helder Costa claim emerges

Image for Leeds United: Fans flock as Helder Costa claim emerges

A whole host of Leeds United fans have reacted on Twitter to this latest Helder Costa transfer claim.

Costa is still Leeds United’s seventh most expensive player in the club’s history as they shelled out £16 million for the winger in 2020 but he never managed to nail down a regular starting role under Marcelo Bielsa in the Premier League.

Could Bielsa be sacked by Leeds?





Once Leeds managed to bring in Daniel James over the summer, Costa was allowed to head out on loan and he has been with Valencia ever since, but his form has failed to improve having not scored in La Liga thus far.

This has seemingly not completely put Valencia off signing the winger permanently next summer as a Spanish outlet have claimed that if the La Liga outfit wish to make the winger’s move permanently, they’ll have to pay a huge £19.5 million.

A lot of Leeds fans are happy on Twitter to see how much they could receive from the sale of Costa.

What have these Leeds fans been saying?

“If this is true then this is scam of the century”


“Ever since he got that fresh trim – turned into prime rapha”




“That really would be a miracle…”




“No chance but if we get more than £10, bite their hand off.”


Despite his poor attacking output in the Premier League, Marcelo Bielsa may well be wishing he kept Costa at the club given the injury crisis he is currently having to deal with as the likes of Rodrigo and Patrick Bamford are all injured.

This was a low point in Leeds United's history, but how many points did they get in the 2003/04 campaign?
