Finally the transfer saga of the summer at Leeds so far is over, subject to a medical that is. Leeds have this afternoon confirmed the signing of Spanish ace Samu Saiz and confirm he will travel to Austria for pre-season once he passes his medical.

The number 10 has signed from Huesca in Spain for a fee believed to be in the region of £3.1 million, the second highest fee paid by Leeds for any player since relegation from the Premier League, falling short of the £3.5 million we paid for Swedish international Pontus Jansson earlier this summer.

Saiz is expected to sign a 3-year-deal and we already know he will be on wages of around £17k per week. Leeds saw of competition from La Liga clubs Real Betis and Eibar to secure the deal for the best player outside of the Spanish top tier according to sources in Spain. The medical will most probably take place later tonight or tomorrow and Saiz is expected to be announced in the squad for Austria later this week.

Mad always we have an in-depth fan view from Huesca on Saiz, and it’s a cracker. Keep a look out for that later tonight.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
