Hadi Sacko: In action for France

Leeds have announced the signing of winger Hadi Sacko on a season-long loan deal from Sporting Lisbon, with a view to a permanent deal.

The 22-year-old Frenchman is the third new recruit at Elland Road following the additions of defender Kyle Bartley and striker Marcus Antonsson, and caused quite a stir when it was revealed that he has a €60m buy-out clause installed in his contract with the Portuguese giants.

He joined Sporting Lisbon from Bordeaux in 2014, making over 50 appearances for the ‘B’ team as well as spending half of last season on loan back in France with Ligue 2 side Sochaux, scoring twice in 14 appearances.

He has already been a part of the Leeds United squad currently in Ireland for their pre-season training camp and is set to feature in the upcoming friendlies against Shelbourne and Shamrock Rovers.
