On Decemeber 14th, we relayed news from Spain and France, who claimed that Samuel Saiz of Leeds United is edging closer towards joining Getafe.

The La Liga outfit’s president, Angel Torres confirmed his side would make an imminent signing and made it clear it was the 27-year-old, without mentioning the attacking midfielder’s name.

José Bordalás, the Spanish club’s manager admitted the deal is not yet finalised for the ex-Huesca man.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo have now provided an update on Getafe’s chances of signing their former player and they claim the player is ‘one step away’ from returning to the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

This is taking into the account the comments made by Torres, where he assured that Saiz could be at their stadium for Getafe’s clash against Real Sociedad ahead of his potential transfer.

Mundo also mentions the Championship attacker, whose contract at Elland Road runs down in 2021, is now close to wearing the shirt of his former employer once again.
