According to Football Insider, Leeds United have rejected an offer for home-sick play-maker Samu Saiz.

The 28-year-old Spaniard left Leeds on loan in January due to family issues and spent the second half of last term on loan with Getafe, scoring  one goal in 13 games and not really pulling out any tree’s with his performances.

It now transpires that a mystery La Liga outfit have enquired about taking Saiz on loan for next season, but this is unacceptable for Leeds as they would be more inclined to a permanent deal seeing as though the player has outlined his desire to play in his homeland once again.

All this means Saiz may have to return to Thorp Arch at the end of this month to start pre-season training with his old team mates, unless a suitable offer comes in for the attacking midfielder.

Saiz was somewhat of of fans favourite at Elland Road and most fans will harbour some hope that the player will stay with Leeds and reignite some of his earlier form with the West Yorkshire club, However, given his personal situation, that may not be a possibility.

Will this transfer saga continue long into the summer or will the player and the club find a quick and easy resolution? I suppose that comes down to who wants him enough to cough up the funds.
