Helder Costa finally secured a loan move away from Elland Road on transfer deadline day to Valencia.

And, the Portuguese winger has spoken to the Yorkshire Evening Post for the first time since the move – which will likely turn permanent at the end of the loan deal.

Costa took advice from Leeds striker Rodrigo Moreno as well Gonçalo Guedes, who was his team-mate at Benfica.

“The first thing I did was talk to Rodrigo Moreno,” said Costa.

“He told me many good things both about the club and the city and it was an easy decision. I am happy to be here. Guedes was my partner at Benfica. I’ve known him for many years. I spoke with him before coming and he told me that the Club had all the conditions for me to continue evolving.

“Valencia CF is a very big team. I’m very excited and I want to start working. I want to do my best for the team.”
