Helder Costa looks like an absolute bargain for Leeds United

#10 Helder Costa of Wolverhampton Wanderers vies with #43 Kevin Mbabu of BSC Young Boys during the Uhrencup 2018 on July 14, 2018 at the Neufeld stadium in Bern, Switzerland.

Wolverhampton Wanderers winger is set to sign for Leeds United, and they have got him for less than what Derby County paid for Harry Wilson.

Leeds United have secured a bargain deal by snapping up Helder Costa from Wolverhampton Wanderers for just £2 million.

Wolves Bite claim that Leeds are paying £2 million to take Costa on loan for the season, and Victor Orta must feel proud of that deal.

Only last season Derby County paid £3 million to sign Harry Wilson from Liverpool on loan, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

 

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.
