Leeds United announced on their official club website on Monday that they had agreed a deal to sign SD Huesca attacking midfielder Samuel Saiz, subject to a medical.
The Yorkshire outfit have been trying to seal a move for the 26-year-old for the last few weeks but they look to have finally got their man as Thomas Christiansen continues to build a side that will be targeting promotion to the Premier League next season.
The Spanish attacker scored 12 goals and provided a further eight assists in 40 appearances in La Liga 2 last season to catch the attention of the Championship outfit, and he is likely to play just off of Chris Wood at Elland Road.
Leeds supporters were quick to have their say on the deal via social media, and while many were delighted at the imminent arrival of Saiz, there were some that weren’t impressed with the addition.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
