Leeds United have confirmed Helder Costa has officially joined the club on a four-year deal.

The Portugal international joined on loan from Wolves last summer - ahead of a planned permanent move.

That deal has now become official and the 26-year-old will be staying with the Sky Bet Championship leaders until at least the summer of 2024.

A Leeds statement read: "Costa began his career at Benfica, before loan spells at Deportivo La Coruna and AS Monaco.

"He joined Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2016 and, after a successful loan where he was named Player of the Season, he signed permanently for a then club-record transfer fee.

"Costa went on to play a key part in the Wolves side which won the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship and earned his first international cap for Portugal at the end of the season.
