DONE DEAL: Leeds sign Wolves winger Helder Costa

Leeds United have snapped up Helder Costa from Wolves.

Costa joins Leeds on loan for the 2019/20 season and will make the permanent switch next summer.

The 25-year-old has agreed a four year contract with the Whites, which will run until the summer of 2024.

The Portuguese international began his career at Benfica before having loan spells at Deportivo La Coruna and AS Monaco, ahead of joining Wolves in 2016, initially on a temporary basis.

A tricky winger who can also play as a centre forward, Costa made his international debut for Portugal last year, scoring the opening goal in a 3-1 win against Scotland at Hampden Park.

He will wear the number 17 shirt for Whites and becomes Leeds' fourth signing of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of Jack Harrison, Ben White and Liam McCarron earlier this week.
