‘A game changer’ – These Wolves fans react to Costa’s departure

Wolverhampton Wanderers have officially confirmed that Helder Costa has joined Leeds United in the Championship. The 25-year-old attacker is initially heading to Elland Road on a season-long loan, but will join the Whites permanently next summer.

The Portuguese ace was a regular starter for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side in the top flight last season. However, he failed to show his best form in the Premier League. He previously played a key role in getting Wolves promoted from the Championship but struggled to make the step up and have the same influence.

Despite his past influence, Nuno has evidently decided that Costa is surplus to requirements when it comes to taking Wolves forward once more. Considering how impressive his side were last season, it’s unsurprising that the struggling Costa has been squeezed out.

Costa will now be desperate to fight his way back into the top flight, as he still has plenty to prove at that level. 

In Costa’s absence, there’s now space in Nuno’s squad for another wide attacker to establish himself as a starter. Having struggled for starts last season, Adama Traore will be hoping to take advantage of Costa’s exit.
