Leeds United are still confident that they will be able to sell Samu Saiz this summer, even though Getafe aren’t interested, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post

Leeds loaned Saiz to Getafe in January, with the attacking midfielder opting to push for a move to Spain.

 

However, the switch did not work out as hoped for Saiz, as he failed to make much of an impression.

Saiz scored just one goal in 12 Getafe appearances, and has now returned to Leeds.

The Whites now face having to find a new buyer for Saiz, but they are confident that they will be able to do so.

Leeds United's Samu Saiz holds off the challenge from Nottingham Forest's Jack Colback at Elland Road on October 27, 2018 in Leeds, England.

Leeds paid £3 million for Saiz back in 2017 (Yorkshire Evening Post), and his value has surely risen during his time at Elland Road.

Saiz was a key player for Leeds during his time at the club, but it seems that he has no route back into Marcelo Bielsa’s side now, with the Yorkshire side still intending to sell him this summer.
