Plenty of Leeds United fans heaped praise on Helder Costa after he signed a permanent deal with the club on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old initially joined the club on loan from the Premier League outfit Wolves, but the club’s official Twitter account announced that they have been able to extend his stay at Elland Road for Β£16m on a four-year contract.

Fans have been critical recently of Costa’s performance, particularly during his side’s 1-1 draw against Luton Town. Taking this into account, the Portuguese striker has only scored three goals and provided three assists from 40 appearances during the current campaign in the Championship.

Are you happy to see Helder Costa secure a permanent deal?

Yes

No

Leeds initially took interest in Costa after he became an outcast for Wolves in the Premier League, scoring just once from 16 starts last season.

With this in mind, supporters were delighted to see Costa pen a permanent deal and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that there is still “lots to come from this guy”, while another described the news as “fantastic stuff”.
