Leeds have a slick merchant on their hands
The transfer saga of Chris Wood finally came to an end with the forward joining Burnley 3 days ago. But it’s not all doom and gloom as a new fan favourite seems to be emerging at Elland Road.
New boy Samu Saiz is turning out to be an astute signing for the Thorp Arch residents. The Spanish attacking midfielder showcased his potential in their win against Newport County.
The former SD Huesca man played a quick one-two, improvising his pass by shifting the ball towards his teammate with a perfectly timed backheel.
Caught in a tight space between two defenders, Saiz displayed excellent vision and a sublime touch to create space and continue Leeds’ attack.
Only initial stages of the 2017/18 season, but the short cameo on display by their new man is definitely encouraging for the supporters.
Leeds fans will be hoping he can continue his rich vein of form into the deep end of this campaign. Check out the skills from Saiz below –
