It sounds like Samu Saiz has already found a new home in Spain and is ready to move right in.
Torres said some players at Getafe already know who it is, but he couldn’t name the player tonight as “it would anger the English team”.— David Cartlidge (@davidjaca) December 13, 2018
Sáiz would arrive as a loan, with option to buy.
Of course, if Saiz is ready to go AWOL and off to Spain before a deal is actually struck, he’s pretty daft. To paraphrase a song lyric from Bill Withers, before he wrecks his old home, he’d better be certain of his new.
Leeds have looked good with Saiz on the bench, and if he’s been unsettled, it could explain why Marcelo Bielsa has been loathe to start him. Leeds can win without Saiz.
On to the links.
