Leeds United winger Helder Costa has been the topic of conversation recently, and there is now a new update regarding his future at Elland Road.
The latest on Helder Costa
According to Football Insider, Leeds have no plans to offload Costa in January. This is due to the fact that he is regarded as a long-term investment by the club and he will be told by the coaching staff to stay and fight for his place.
He still has the quality to succeed at Leeds
This season Costa has not shown his quality. The 26 year-old has scored twice in ten appearances and has only managed, on average, 0.9 shots and 0.7 key passes a game (WhoScored).
However, Costa definitely has the quality to succeed, with his former manager Nuno Espirito Santo once saying: “The first season we were in the Premier League, Helder was immense and had a huge impact on the team.
“He’s a very talented player, but things happen naturally, players move from here to another place. It happens in football. Honestly, I’m delighted he’s showing his quality and enjoying his football.”
The player will know that he has to perform better and more consistently when given the chance if he wants to be playing more games for the club, and the fact that he has been given this backing before the transfer window should see him want to prove any doubters wrong.
