Well, Leeds United have terminated Hugo Diaz's contract.
The Spanish midfielder, who joined the Whites two years ago, had an impressive year with the Under-23s last season, but it wasn't enough to convince the powers-that-be at Thorp Arch to keep him.
If anyone was going to break into Marcelo Bielsa's senior squad from the Under-23s during the summer, it would've been him.
And the fact that Leeds released him makes very little sense - unless, of course, there is a confidence that Orta can sign somebody better.
The 22-year-old, who was originally contracted to the Elland Road side until 2020 [Transfermarkt], played a big role in what was a brilliant season for Carlos Corberan's side.
He was at the age where he would've had to either leave or move into the first-team setup but, considering Orta has let him go, perhaps Leeds' Director of Football has his eye on another midfielder.
The Whites haven't really been linked to signing a central midfielder as of yet, but it wouldn't be a big surprise if at least one was to arrive on the back of this.
