‘Such a shame,’ ‘Why’s everyone annoyed?’ – Mixed reaction from Leeds fans to sale of creative player



Samu Saiz shoots v Sheff Wed

Leeds United have confirmed the departure of Samuel Saiz, and it is being met with a mixed reaction by fans.

Many are disappointed to lose a player of his quality, whilst others argue that he was too inconsistent to warrant a place in the squad, particularly as he has declined over the last few months.

Others highlighted the fact that Saiz requested to leave midway through last season, which was what led to his loan spell at Getafe.

Saiz signed for Leeds in 2017 and made 58 appearances in total. He remained part of first-team plans after Marcelo Bielsa took charge but after stating he was unhappy in England it always seemed likely that he would leave Leeds on a permanent basis.

Girona have signed the Spaniard for an undisclosed fee, but it is likely Leeds will have tried to recoup much of the approximate £3.5m they spent on him two years ago, particularly as Getafe had the option of making his loan permanent for £6.5m.

Here are some of the contrasting responses from Leeds fans on Twitter.
