Championship outfit Leeds United have confirmed the signing of Wolves winger Helder Costa, opening the door wider for Rangers to secure Ryan Kent.
The Yorkshire club have added Costa after the Portuguese spent a season with Wolves in the English Premier League.

The Helder Costa signing follows Leeds securing Academy prospect Jack Clarke on-loan for the season immediately after selling the talented winger to Spurs.
Shortly before that Leeds had also managed to resign Manchester City winger Jack Harrison as they look to return to the Premier League after what will be a 16-year absence.
It means that Leeds are now fully stocked in the wide areas. It is increasingly unlikely they’ll fork out to sign Liverpool winger Ryan Kent.
With Leeds previously said to be interested in Kent, should they drop out of the race to sign the player it increases the chances the Liverpool star could join Rangers on-loan.
Birmingham Live also claimed that Premier League new boys Aston Villa were not interested in signing Kent despite reports otherwise.
Middlesbrough is the other club which is said to be closely monitoring the future of Ryan Kent.
But with Kent’s options looking increasingly limited, it looks like both Rangers and the player could get their wish and see Kent return come to the end of the window.
