Hadi Sacko has called on Leeds United fans to continue their ‘special’ support for the club in the coming years after he completed his transfer from Sporting Lisbon.
The winger spent last term on loan with the Whites and impressed enough for the move to be made permanent, as confirmed on LeedsUnited.com.

Following his signing on a three-year deal, Sacko emphasised the role that Leeds fans have to play in any future success for the fallen giants.
“It is very special to play at Elland Road, the fans are always very good and I hope it can be replicated again next season and throughout the three years,” the 23-year-old told the club’s official website.
“I remember playing my first game against Atlanta in pre-season and I was wowed at the atmosphere and fans.”
Sacko made 38 league appearances for Leeds throughout the last campaign, scoring twice and providing a further three assists as his side narrowly missed out on a Championship play-off spot.
Having looked certain to finish in the top six at the end of March, the Yorkshire outfit won only one of their last eight matches and slipped out of contention, with Fulham stealing in ahead of them.
They will hope to go one better next year and with the capture of Sacko have shown that they are looking to get their transfer business done early ahead of the new season.
Leeds are currently on the lookout for a new manager after seeing the popular Garry Monk resign in May.
