Promising Leeds United talent Ousama Siddiki has left the club to return to Spain on a permanent deal.

Siddiki was announced as a new signing by Segunda Liga side Union Deportiva Legrones.


The young attacker signed for Leeds last summer from Real Madrid's academy.

Despite having an eye-catching CV as a Real Madrid talent and Morocco youth international, Siddiki struggled to make a big impression at Leeds.

Some of this was injury related, with Siddiki missing much of the first half of the season due to fitness struggles.

When he did return in 2018, Siddiki featured infrequently and got a little lost among the competition for places.

At 20-years-old, he needs to go and play competitive football and was no closer to doing so at Leeds.

The chance to play in the Spanish second division could be a good opportunity for him.
