Samu Saiz shocked Leeds United fans last week when he completed a loan-to-buy move to join Spanish side Getafe. But who should Leeds consider to replace him?

The Whites have been linked with a number of players since the summer, that can play in attacking midfield.

Here are three examples of players linked with Leeds that can fill the void left by former Atletico Madrid star Saiz:

Lewis MacLeod

Leeds are going up against Scottish side Rangers to land the Brentford star, according to the Scottish Sun. He is out of contract at the end of the season.

 

Known for being able to nick the odd goal, MacLeod is hard working and boasts the kind of qualities Bielsa wants in his Leeds side. A top signing, if the Whites can convince to pick Leeds over former side Rangers.

Nick Powell

TeamTalk claimed in the summer that Leeds are one of a number of sides monitoring the Wigan Athletic star,  who is also out of contract at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old has been in decent form for a side that are nearer the bottom of the table. He has had a hand in nine goals during his 18 Championship appearances – scoring four and creating five. Another top addition.

Ibai Gomez

Spaniard Gomez worked under Marcelo Bielsa at Athletic Bilbao, and has since been heavily linked with a move to Elland Road – according to Goal.

The 29-year-old has been in decent enough form for La Liga side Alaves, scoring three goals in 17 games. His contract also expires in the summer.
