Hadi Sacko is leaving Leeds United to sign for Las Palmas on loan, reports the reliable Canarias7.
The Canary Island media outlet usually have the inside line on what’s happening at Las Palmas, and they treat the transfer as a sure thing, done deal.
In their headline, Canarias7 say it’s a ‘surprise’ move and Sakco ‘arrives on loan from Leeds’.
The player’s versatility is seen as a boost for the Spanish club, who suffered relegation from the top flight last season.
Sources within Las Palmas have told Canarias7 that the arrival of Sacko is ‘imminent’ and the presentation of the player would be expected this week.
Negotiations are said to have been ‘simmering for several weeks’, and a good relationship between the two clubs has helped a deal. Talks to arrange the friendly, which was played on Sunday at Elland Road, built that relationship and helped Las Palmas get the player.
It’s claimed there was no shortage of proposals from English and Portuguese clubs for the Leeds United player.
