Leeds United finally cut ties with winger Hadi Sacko in the summer.

Sacko had spent three seasons at the club, one on loan and then two unsatisfactory campaigns after signing permanently.

He never played a game under Marcelo Bielsa, who sent him out on two separate loans last season.

Sacko signed permanently with Turkish side Denizlispor in the summer, and made a belated impact for them this weekend.

 

He showed a long awaited clinical edge to score twice in a 2-1 victory over Gaziantep at the weekend.

These goals were Sacko's first for his new club in 11 Super Lig games.

They were made even better by the fact he was left as an unused substitute in their previous game.

He has one assist to his name this season, which came more than a month ago.

Sacko did score once in the Turkish Cup against a lower league side back in September, but was not able to build on it.

He has had a stop start career so far, and needs to kick on from here.

Scoring twice in one game is more than he ever managed at Leeds, where he scored two goals in 60 appearances.
