Leeds United: Helder Costa will not struggle to find new club with Jorges Mendes on the case

Leeds United winger Helder Costa will not struggle to find a move away from Elland Road this summer, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The newspaper has reported in its print edition [21 July, pg. 46] that with Jorge Mendes and his agency on the case, an exit should be easy.

The Angolan international is expected to move away from West Yorkshire, after a failed spell was backed up by his struggles on loan at Valencia last season.

Writing in his latest snippet for the Yorkshire Evening Post from Australia, Smyth shared the latest news on potential outgoings from Thorp Arch.

“Costa is also expected to depart Elland Road this summer and with Jorge Mendes’ Gestifute agency representing him, will not struggle for a move,” he wrote.

Dead wood.

With plenty of new arrivals boosting the squad, it looks as though some may start to move the other way.

Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha have both been replaced already, and with a new striker and left-back seemingly on the way, it appears that the exit door could be busier.

Ian Poveda is another winger who could move on now, with the final third looking crowded.

Luis Sinisterra is joined by Jack Harrison, Dan James and Crysencio Summerville, with the likes of Brenden Aaronson also capable of filling in if needed.

Costa arrived for big money and is also likely on big wages too, so if Victor Orta can ship him on sooner rather than later along with the likes of Kiko Casilla, there will be big savings made.

This is a critical stage of the summer now with less than three weeks till the season starts, it is critical that the squad is looking prepared for that first game against Wolves.
