Leeds United winger Hadi Sacko is reportedly set to join Spanish side Las Palmas, after the Whites faced the relegated outfit on Sunday afternoon at Elland Road - and some Leeds fans have wished the speed machine all the best.

Spanish outlet Fichajes claim that the 24-year-old is set to leave the club on a season-long loan, with discussions taking place for weeks over a move to sign Sacko. Las Palmas were relegated from La Liga last season.

 

Somewhat of a coincidence, Leeds beat Las Palmas on Sunday thanks to a late Kemar Roofe goal - a match in which Sacko was not picked for by new manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Indeed, the France-born Mali international has not featured at all for Bielsa's side throughout pre-season, and was missing from the club's new squad numbers list - along with Eunan O'Kane, Caleb Ekuban, Vurnon Anita and others.

It remains to be seen if there is a permanent deal at the end of the loan for Sacko to move permanently to the Spanish club, but it looks set for Sacko to join Las Palmas until this time next summer.

Some Leeds fans reacted to the news that Sacko is expected to move to Spain on loan, with the majority wishing him the best of luck while some supporters questioned whether he was good enough for Leeds.
