Most Leeds United fans thought we had signed a gem when we brought in Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Helder Costa during the summer transfer window.

The season long loan for the 25-year-old automatically turns permanent next summer for a fee believed to be in the region of £15million all in, and he’s certainly impressed plenty of fans in his brief showings so far – with plenty believing he should be getting more starts under manager Marcelo Bielsa now he’s got his fitness levels up.

The Portuguese midfielder has only made six starts, with eight showings from the bench, and with only one goal and one assist returned so far, there are bags of room for improvement, but he didn’t have his greatest game against Birmingham at the weekend and for some reason, some fans on social media are now concerned that we are already committed to signing him properly next summer.

I didn’t think he was that bad against Birmingham, we again saw glimpses of what he’s capable of, but it was one of those games and it was more open than we’d have liked in terms of their chances. I get the argument we should now be seeing more from him, but he needs a proper run of games first surely.
