Transfer Focus: Leeds right to reject Saiz offer

According to Football Insider, Leeds United have rejected a loan offer for their wantaway playmaker Samu Saiz.

It’s no secret that the Spaniard wants to leave Elland Road this summer, but the Yorkshire club are absolutely making the right decision in holding out for a permanent deal.

What’s the story?

Football Insider have reported that Leeds have turned down a loan offer for Saiz from an unnamed La Liga side. It had previously been said that Getafe, Alaves and Valencia were interested in his services, but it is unknown at this moment which team has made a move for him.

The 28-year-old spent the second half of last season out on loan at Getafe, but Leeds seemingly don’t want to let him go unless they’re getting a fee.

Right decision

Leeds are undoubtedly making the right decision on their former talisman’s future.

The midfielder’s contract has two years left to run on it, so if the Whites don’t sell him in this transfer window, they may not get as high a fee next season.

The Whites need to recoup as much cash as possible as their recent transfer policy has shown that they aren’t able to spend money unless they sell players.

Saiz is still one of the most talented players in the Championship, and even though he’s unhappy at the club he should still fetch a decent price.

Allowing him to go out on loan only to sell him 12 months later would be a stupid decision as it looks like he is well and truly finished in English football.
