According to Denizli Yeni Olay, Leeds United winger Hadi Sacko is closing in on a move to Denizlispor in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that Turkish club Denizlispor have ironed out the financial issues with Leeds and will complete the signing of Sacko next week.


The Whites increased their asking price due to Ankaragucu’s interest in the 25-year-old winger, and the Mali international met with Leeds officials this week to discuss his departure from Elland Road, according to the report.

No big miss

Sacko has been on the books of Leeds since 2017, but the Mali international winger has been unable to make a major impact at the Whites.

The 25-year-old was out on loan at Las Palmas and Ankaragucu, and it seems that he is ready to move on from the Whites.

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa clearly does not rate the 25-year-old, and the winger’s exit will not have any effect on the Whites next season.
