The gaffer is glad to have Samu Saiz back available for selection. Join the club, buddy.

Leeds head coach Paul Heckingbottom will have Samu Saiz available for selection for the first time at Leeds. Saiz was a game-changer before he was suspended for six matches after being red carded for spitting against Newport County in the FA Cup. It’ll be interesting to see where Heckingbottom uses Saiz in the lineup. Saiz has played winger in the past, but the possibility of him playing off Lasogga as a second striker wouldn’t be terribly different than what the team looked like back in August when Leeds were top of the league.

Now we’ll see how Heckingbottom does with Saiz back in the lineup.
