Samuel Saiz is now all set for a medical ahead of a move to Getafe, and Leeds fans are fuming that they are allowing a loan deal for such an important player half-way through the season.
Leeds fans were shocked when news of Saiz’s impending departure broke on Thursday, and the 27 year-old’s future at Elland Road seems to have disappeared in a matter of days.
According to The Yorkshire Evening Post, the player is already set for a medical with Getafe, who he will join on loan in January with a view to a permanent deal.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below...
Saiz, who has yet to find a single Championship goal this season, is apparently unhappy in England, and wants to leave the club as soon as possible.
The report claims the medical will happen immediately, meaning Saiz will miss the trip to face Bolton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.
The move will not officially go through until January 1, but all the details could be decided by the end of this weekend.
Fans aren’t happy with the deal, more so because they are not getting an immediate fee to use on a replacement rather than the actual departure of the player.

Let best player leave on loan and don’t replace in jan, standard leeds

Mad how deal outgoing take about 24hrs to complete. Incoming take about a month.
Best for all parties that it’s quick though, in all seriousness. Awful bit if business that it’s on a load deal. Possibly one of the club’s worst decisions in our history, given our position ?

At least keep him until January with all the fixtures coming up this month it could be costly. Just when things are going too well ?

A little piece of me has died TBH, really liked Saiz. The club need to replace him with equal quality in Jan IMO, this is one of those moments where we need to show we mean business for the promotion run in.

Can somebody please just take a pan of paella and a bottle of sangria round to Samu’s house and put a stop to this nonsense?

Ridiculous decision by the club rolling over straight away and it should be cash on the nose not a loan till the end of the season – amateur hour yet again!

If he doesn’t want to be there, sell him straight away, don’t send him out on loan with an option for them to buy later.

This wouldn’t happen at any other club going for promotion. It’s shambolic.

Only #lufc could do something like this! Whatever about letting him leave but get the money in to strengthen-it’s not as if we have loads of options-could derail us without adequate replacement because he brings something different #mot
