​Leeds United have unveiled their newest, and eighth, signing of the summer so far with Samuel Saiz putting pen to paper on a four-year deal at Elland Road - for an undisclosed fee. 

The Yorkshire side confirmed the news of the attacking midfielder, who joins the club from Spanish Segunda División outfit SD Huesca, via their ​website on Thursday. 

The Whites have been busy preparing for next season as they look to take further strides towards promotion to the Premier League and Saiz is the newest addition to the squad after completing his medical earlier in the week.

The 26-year-old came through the ranks at Real Madrid, making appearances for their B and C teams, before having spells at UD Melilla, Getafe and UD Almería.

Atletico Madrid then made a permanent move for Saiz in 2014, which was largely unsuccessful resulting in his switch to Huesca only a season later on loan, which then became permanent in 2016. 

Saiz made 40 appearances last season - netting 12 goals and providing eight assists - as he helped his side make the play-offs. 

The 26-year-old will now link up with his new teammates, alongside the club's newest signings of Vurnon Anita, Caleb Ekuban, Madger Gomes, Pontus Jansson, Matuesz Klich, Hadi Sacko and Felix Wiedwald.
