Leeds United took a massive step towards the Premier League on Saturday with a 1-0 win over Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
Jack Harrison’s goal handed the Whites a massive three points. It put them three in front of Sheffield United with just four games of the season left to play.
It could prove to be a monumental day for the Elland Road-based outfit. The delight was clear for all to see among players and supporters following the full-time whistle.
One man who hasn’t been around Leeds this season is Hadi Sacko. He joined Turkish outfit Ankaragucu back in January, following an unsuccessful first half of the season with Las Palmas.
Last night Sacko took to Twitter to speak of his delight at a pair of good results for his clubs this weekend.
Ankaragucu beat Kayserispor 2-0 to make it a duo of victories for the 25-year-old. He tweeted:

The versatile forward played 18 games for the Whites last season, bagging one goal.
It is uncertain at this stage whether he has a future with the club or not. Some supporters reacted to his tweet, however, suggesting that they’d quite like to see him back in Yorkshire next season:
Sacko has a potential under bielsa

He’s quicker than dan James so add an end product to his game and he will be handy in prem

It seems unlikely that Bielsa will trust a player to come straight back from a loan spell and play a part next season, especially if Leeds are a Premier League club.
Given his age, however, there is room for improvement and he may well be handed a chance in pre-season.
He clearly still has a soft spot for the Whites and will be doing his utmost to finish the season on a high in Turkey.
