Leeds United have secured a bargain deal by snapping up Helder Costa from Wolverhampton Wanderers for just £2 million.
Wilson had a great season at Derby, but he was far less proven in the Championship than Costa, and Leeds have got the Portuguese man for a considerable amount less.
Leeds have managed to temporarily get potentially one of the most dangerous attackers for a very low fee.
Leeds simply wouldn’t have been able to sign a player of equal quality to Costa on a permanent deal for just £2 million, no matter how hard they looked.
The Whites current transfer strategy may appear slightly short-term in its outlook, but it may well be the best way for Leeds to earn promotion.
And the addition of Costa looks like great value for money for Leeds, as he could be a true difference maker next term.
