Botaka struggled at Leeds, and has since moved to Belgium.
Jordan Botaka flopped during his spell at Leeds United but after posting a throwback video of his time at Elland Road, where is the fleet-footed winger now?
Nicknamed 'The Wizard' because of his mesmerising skill and tricks while in possession (Metro), Leeds decided to spend £1million (YEP) on the DR Congo international in 2015 to bring him to Elland Road from Dutch Eredivisie side Excelsior.
But Botaka managed just 14 appearances for Leeds under Steve Evans, before he was loaned to Charlton for the 2016-17 season by Garry Monk who felt he did not need the young star.
Botaka then left Leeds in the summer of 2017, joining Belgian Jupiler Pro League side Sint-Truidense where he currently remains. He posted a video on his Instagram page of his time at Leeds, including plenty of tricks and flicks.

Since leaving Leeds, Botaka has slowly started building his career back up. He is now the club captain of Sint-Truidense, where he has clocked up 54 appearances in all competitions.
He has started every single match for the top-tier outfit this season, including most recently the 4-2 league win over Anderlecht. He has also played against the likes of Club Brugge, Genk and Standard Liege this season.
Now with 16 caps for his country, it seems as though Botaka is starting to show the form that saw Leeds sign him in the first place. Perhaps, Leeds were too quick to rid themselves of the silky winger.
