Neutral fans on Twitter are reacting to reports that Leeds United are about to sign Helder Costa of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

According to The Telegraph, the Wolves winger has already said his goodbyes and will join Leeds on a season-long loan next week.

If it happens before any other United targets move to West Yorkshire, it'll be the Whites' first signing in a transfer window that has mainly centered around potential outgoings - Jack Clarke, to be specific.

Marcelo Bielsa's side narrowly missed out on automatic promotion last season, despite spending much of the campaign alternating between first and second place.

 

And neutral fans on Twitter reckon that the Argentine is about to make a top signing in the form of the Portuguese flyer.

Here's how they reacted:

The 25-year-old struggled on Wanderers' return to the Premier League last year, scoring once in 25 appearances, but his last season in the Championship was productive.

Costa, who has one cap for Portugal, scored five and set up six in 21 Championship starts during the 2017-18 campaign. For comparison, Jack Harrison, on the left wing, bagged four goals and three assists in 34 league starts for United last term.
