With Leeds United’s reported interest in Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Helder Costa well known, it seems progress on the season long loan deal is still being made.
With it looking likely that there will be only one outcome here, we all know the kind of quality Costa would add to us next season as the lad certainly has an end product as we’ve seen it before from his last spell in the second tier.
It’s not unfair to say that the one time Portugal international 25-year-old had a poorer campaign in the Premier League, but as per the claim from Football Insider if we can get a deal over the line for simply a “£2million plus” loan fee, that would be fantastic business from our point of view.
With it believed that Wolves are more open to a permanent deal, the report also claims that our loan will include a ‘solid’ buy clause which you would expect to be in the region of £15-20million I would think, but it wouldn’t be an obligation and may only come into play if we go one step further next year and return to the Premier League.
I have a feeling we might see progress on this one next week.
