Helder Costa arrival should free up Leeds playmaker Pablo Hernandez

Helder Costa is one the new Leeds United signings made this summer by manager Marcelo Bielsa and he could have a key role to play in the new season.

The 25-year-old has joined from Wolverhampton Wanderers on an initial loan deal, which will turn into a £15million permanent one the following summer (Mirror).

He is a right-winger with tremendous ability, while he’s previously experienced promotion from the Championship before.

It looks a no-brainer for the speed machine to take up a spot in the Leeds team on the right flank and he could add some more goals to the side.


His arrival could mean though a different role for Pablo Hernandez, who was the talisman for the Leeds team last season under Bielsa.

Hernandez scored 12 goals and supplied 12 assists in 41 games across all competitions during the last campaign.

The 34-year-old may be creeping towards the latter stages of his career, but showed no signs of slowing down last year and was one of the best in the division.

He is a Spanish playmaker that often slotted in on the right flank and was dangerous when drifting into more central areas to create for teammates.

Costa’s arrival should free up Hernandez to play in a more central number 10 role and could make the Yorkshire club even more dangerous going forward.
