Hadi Sacko has signed a permanent deal with Leeds United
Leeds United have confirmed they have signed former loanee Hadi Sacko on a permanent deal from Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon.
The 23-year-old has penned a three-year contract following a successful loan spell at Elland Road, keeping him at the club until the 2019/20 season.
Leeds managing director Angus Kinnear said: “We are delighted to announce the signing of Hadi today.
"He is an exciting player with great potential and a player we hope to see develop over the next three years.”

Sacko's move to Leeds was cast into doubt last month when the winger announced on Twitter he was uncertain about his future after failing to reach the Championship play-offs.
"Not sure if it's an au devoir or an adieu now," he wrote.
"But I really wanted to thank all of the people in Leeds who welcomed me as a real member of this great family.
"All the fans giving that incredible atmosphere at home and away games on and off the pitch, we had an incredible journey even if we could have enjoyed it a bit longer, no regrets."

Predominantly a right-winger, Sacko can also operate as a centre-forward and on the left flank.
