Big future at Leeds United
Diaz has been on the books of Leeds since the summer of 2017 and has made just one appearance in the Championship so far in his career.
The 21-year-old is still progressing and developing as a footballer, and it is only a matter of time before the centre-back gets to feature in head coach Marcelo Bielsa’s team.
Leeds are at the top of the Championship table at the moment with 54 points from 28 matches, a point clear of second-placed Norwich City.
