Samu Saiz to seal permanent Getafe move and Leeds United exit move next summer

Samu Saiz’ loan move to Getafe from Leeds United has included a deal to make a move permanent next summer.

Thursday evening saw the Spanish side announce a medical and loan deal for Saiz, who was keen not to return to English Championship side Leeds.

Angel Torres, president of Getafe, announced that Saiz would be moving to the La Liga outfit, despite a number of Leeds fans anger at their club allowing him to leave.

Saiz is now expected to be in the crowd to watch his new side play their final La Liga game before Christmas when they travel to face Girona at the weekend.

Both Getafe and Leeds have been fairly silent on the fine details of the move but Sport Witness and Spanish daily Marca have both claimed that the deal does include a permanent option set at €6m, which can be made active next summer.

Saiz moved to England in 2017 and netted eight goals in 13 games last season. Saiz was nominated as one of four players for the Leeds Player of The Year award on 16 April 2018, and gained one goal and four assists in 21 games under former Athletic Bilbao coach Marcelo Bielsa this term.
