Leeds United: Whites fans react on Twitter to update on Saiz’s Elland Road future

Leeds United: Whites fans react on Twitter to update on Saiz’s Elland Road future - Championship

After making a stunning start to his Leeds United career following his move from Huesca in 2017, Samuel Saiz must have felt like he was on the verge of greatness at Elland Road.

Yet after receiving a six-match ban for spitting at an opponent during an FA Cup clash with Newport County, things started to unravel for the Spaniard who struggled for consistency during the remainder of his debut season.

Although Saiz would continue to be a starter for the Whites despite a change in management last summer, a severe drop-off in form eventually resulted in Marcelo Bielsa deciding to loan him to Getafe in January.

Despite being back in his home country, the winger failed to make a positive impression for the Azulones as manager Pepe Bordales limited his involvement to sporadic appearances from the bench.

With Getafe securing their return to the Europa League after securing a fifth-place finish in La Liga last week, it is not at all surprising that they have refused to exercise the option to buy Saiz in the summer for £6m (via The Yorkshire Evening Post).

Having been rejected by the Madrid-based outfit, it is relatively unclear just what the future holds for the 28-year-old yet a return to the Whites would almost certainly be out of the question if Bielsa decides to prolong his stay at the club.

Reacting to journalist Phil Hay’s tweet about the latest update on Saiz, loads of Leeds fans suggested that the club should do all they can to cut ties with the winger.
