Leeds United fans have been reacting to a surprising transfer rumour which has surfaced over the last 24 hours or so.
Indeed, according to a report from El Gol Digital in Spain, Valencia are keen to sign Samuel Saiz from the Championship club before the end of the month.
Saiz has been excellent for Leeds in the early stages of the 2018-19 campaign, with his form key to the Whites sitting top of the Championship table on 13 points.
The 27-year-old represented Huesca during the 2016-17 season before leaving for Leeds, and has been a key player under Marcelo Bielsa this term.
That said, Valencia are a massive football club, and there is no question that the attacker would have to think twice if the former Spanish champions made an actual offer.
The Leeds fans have been reacting to the speculation on social media, and a selection of the reaction can be seen below:
Absolutely no chance of Saiz leaving. Bielsa wouldn’t sanction it and Radz would be mad to even contemplate it #lufc

It would be a disaster!

Worth at least 20 million in today’s market as long as he hasn’t had his head turned. Let’s hope he keeps spitting at people so no clubs want to sign him. Honestly more worried about losing the younger players.

I thought Baker and Saiz were in competition for the same shirt yet today’s papers claim we are looking for a back up for Saiz. Could that mean one of Baker/Saiz is on the way out? Saiz to Valencia for 10mill maybe. #lufc
