Leeds United have today announced the signing of Samuel Saiz on a four year deal.
The transfer, which has been in the works since early June was finally completed after the forward passed his medical on Tuesday. However, Leeds were unable to announce the signing sooner due to an undisclosed hitch holding the transfer deal up.
He will now be available for Thomas Christiansen's side as they travel to Austria for a training camp along with three fixtures against FC Ingolstadt, Borussia Monchengladbach and a club who were interested in Saiz, SD Eibar.
The 26-year old joins Leeds for an undisclosed fee with an expectation for the deal to cost the club around £3million and has signed a four year deal. The fee will be one of the higher fees paid this summer only eclipsed by Pontus Jansson's permanent switch from Torino for a reported £3.5million.
Saiz now joins Jansson along with new recruits Hadi Sacko, Madger Gomes, Mateusz Klich, Vurnon Anita and Felix Wiedwald.
An attacking midfielder by trait, Saiz will be a player to add another attacking threat at Leeds United, who struggled to find goals apart from the 30 that striker Chris Wood secured last season.
Saiz has been earmarked for his ability to find space around the box and comes having scores 12 goals and created 7 assists while at Huesca last season.
With the conclusion of this transfer, Leeds are set to announce a couple more prior to leaving for Austria tomorrow. Is this finally a summer we can celebrate?
