DANIEL FARKE CONFIRMS £15 MILLION LEEDS UNITED PLAYER IS NOT IN HIS PLANS.

Leeds United manager Daniel Farke has stated that winger Helder Costa is not being considered for selection because he wishes to quit the club.

Helder Costa wants to quit Leeds United and says he ‘won’t be involved’ in his search for a new club.

With three wins in the last five games, the Whites are gaining ground in the Championship.

Leeds manager Daniel Farke has a history of spearheading promotion charges, and the club is hopeful he can do the same in West Yorkshire.

Among those who will not be joining the tour is winger Costa, who is no longer in Farke‘s plans.

Daniel Farke weighs in on Helder Costa’s future.

Farke has spoken to Leeds Live ahead of his Whites’ trip to Southampton this weekend.

The topic of winger Costa came up, despite the fact that he has yet to play a single minute for the Whites this season.

The 29-year-old has returned to Leeds after spending last season on loan at Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia.

Costa was supposed to depart Leeds permanently over the summer, but this has not occurred – and he will not play for Leeds.

Costa, according to Farke, wants to leave and is ‘not in our plans’ at Elland Road.

Farke went on to say that Costa ‘won’t be involved’ while Leeds try to find a way for him to leave.

“Nothing has changed,” Farke replied. “Helder’s wish was that he move. Everything is done professionally. We’re working on a solution, but he’s not one of them. “I think Helder had a great career in English football and he’s a good guy,” he continued.

Costa is facing a difficult few months.

Leeds paid a hefty £15 million fee for Costa after first loaning him to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

It’s probably fair to say that Costa hasn’t shown to be a good value for money.

Costa only has three goals and three assists in 23 appearances after making the switch permanently before going on loan to Valencia.

Costa is now entirely out of the picture at Leeds and faces a difficult season as transfer windows across the world close.

If Leeds and Costa can find an arrangement to pay off Costa’s contract, he will be without a club until January.

That is far from ideal, but it appears to be a road Leeds may take in order to get Costa out of the club.
