Leeds United travel to Pride Park on Wednesday to face Derby County and fans are calling for the return of Samuel Saiz to the side on social media.
The Elland Road outfit are currently sitting 11th in the Championship and have had a number of suspensions in the past weeks, however, Paul Heckingbottom is able to consider some of those names for the first time since his arrival.
Saiz, alongside Liam Cooper and Gaetano Berardi, are all available for the Whites and the new manager has admitted they are all ready to get back into action and be involved.
Whilst fans are pleased that they have the majority of their players back and in contention for the first-team, the Spaniard is the one they appear to be most excited about welcoming back into the side.
Saiz has been highly influential in Leeds’ campaign so far this season, having scored eight goals in 13 matches across all competitions so far, however, a six-game suspension stopped his impressive contributions.
The midfielder was banned following an off-the-ball incident during their 2-1 defeat to Newport County in the FA Cup and was shown a red card for allegedly spitting at an opponent.
Fans have taken to Twitter to show their delight that Saiz can be involved once again and have called for Heckingbottom to put him straight into the side.
Here are some of their tweets…

Thought Anita did well against Bristol so I'd keep in the side and bench Berardi. Saiz obvious starter. Don't rate either Cooper or Pennington much so can't make my mind up about them #lufc https://t.co/eGuopbNUkQ
