Leeds United have a new hero.
Leeds United fans have a new hero after Samu Saiz scored a hat-trick on his debut.
The Spanish summer signing was making his first appearance for Leeds after sitting out the weekend victory over Bolton Wanderers.
Now he is going to be impossible for manager Thomas Christiansen to leave out.
Saiz scored three times and another debutant Caleb Ekuban netted another as Leeds beat Port Vale 4-1 in the EFL Cup tie.
Former Leeds midfielder Michael Tonge netted for the away side.
Saiz sent a message to Leeds fans on Twitter expressing his emotion after the memorable night.
For Saiz to score a hat-trick on his debut was one thing, to do it at home ground Elland Road made it even more impressive.
Thomas Christiansen has a big decision to make this weekend when they host Preston North End, as Pablo Hernandez did not too much wrong at the weekend against Bolton.
Saiz though may have forced his manager's hand.
