It appears an old friend is coming back from a loan, but he won’t be staying long.
Sounds likely that Hadi Sacko's loan at Las Palmas will be terminated shortly. Hasn't played much there and Las Palmas want to send him back with a view to him going on loan elsewhere for the second half of the season. Clubs in Hungary and Cyprus interested. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) January 22, 2019
Hadi Sacko’s loan at Las Palmas hasn’t really worked out, so he’s going to be coming back to Leeds. Well, at least temporarily. Phil Hay also reports that Sacko might go to Hungry or Cyprus, which if he does, well, then best of luck to him. Sacko wasn’t a bad guy, and he’s got pace and works hard, but he’s not going to ever be a winger for a Marcelo Bielsa team.
