Leeds United winger Hadi Sacko is poised to join Las Palmas on a season-long loan, the Spanish club confirmed tonight.

Sacko will undergo a medical tomorrow before linking up with the side who contested Leeds’ final pre-season game on Sunday having been ruled out of Marcelo Bielsa’s plans for the Championship.

The former Sporting Lisbon youngster was deemed surplus to requirements earlier in the summer and was not involved in any of United’s friendlies.

Las Palmas were beaten in the last of them, suffering a 1-0 defeat to Bielsa’s side at Elland Road.

Leeds tied Sacko to a three-year contract last summer having finalised a permanent move from Sporting Lisbon despite mixed performances from him during a year-long loan through the 2016-17 term.

Sacko is now poised to spend this campaign in the Spanish second division, adding his name to the long list of departures from Elland Road in this transfer window.

Leeds have removed more than 10 players from their wage bill so far and are continuing to look for offers for midfielder Eunan O’Kane and striker Caleb Ekuban.
