Last updated : 08 October 2023 By .

Leeds United have released winger Helder Costa by mutual consent, more than two years since his last appearance for the Whites.

The 29-year-old, whose contract ran to the end of this campaign, has spent the past two seasons on loan at Valencia in Spain and Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia.

The Angolan joined the Whites on loan from Wolves in July 2019 before signing for £16m in July 2020.

He played a key role for the Whites during the 2019-20 campaign as Leeds were crowned Championship winners.

Costa made 71 appearances for Leeds, scoring eight goals.
