Leeds United reportedly make Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Helder Costa their top target this summer and are pursuing a loan deal.

Leeds United have reportedly made Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Helder Costa their number one target this summer.

The Whites were on course for promotion for the vast majority of last season, but they fell out of the Championship top two with a handful of games remaining and went on to lose out to Derby County in the playoff semi-finals.

Marcelo Bielsa has agreed to stay on and mount a fresh promotion push in 2019-20 and, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Wolves' Costa is the first name on his recruitment wishlist.

The newspaper says that Leeds are unable to afford a permanent deal for the Portuguese player - Wolves paid £13m for his signature just two years ago - but are instead pursuing a loan deal that would see them pay almost all of his £18,000-a-week wages.

Costa was a key part of the Midlands side's promotion-winning season in 2017-18 but dropped out of Nuno Espirito Santo's regular starting XI in the Premier League, starting just 16 of the 38 games last term.

The 25-year-old has two years remaining on his current deal at Molineux.
