Samuel Saiz left Leeds United for Getafe in Spain on loan for until the end of the season in the January transfer window.

Saiz, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a forward, was superb for Leeds during his time at Elland Road, and many fans of the Whites were disappointed to see him leave.

 

The 28-year-old made 15 starts and four substitute appearances in the Championship for Leeds this season before his January loan exit, providing four assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

The former Real Madrid prospect, though, has failed to make a huge impact at Getafe, as he has made only two starts and four substitute appearances in La Liga, according to WhoScored.
