Supporters play helping hand.
Victor Orta has praised the role Leeds United supporters have had in the signing of exciting midfielder Samu Saiz.
Following speculation earlier in the summer, the former Atlético Madrid play-maker was overwhelmed by messages from Leeds United fans on social media.
Director of Football, Orta said: "We are delighted with the signing of Samuel, he is a player we feel can improve the squad and excite the fans, who have made a huge impression on the player already.
“When the speculation regarding a potential transfer to Leeds hit social media last month, Samu received hundreds of messages from Leeds United supporters encouraging him to join the club which was one of the reasons he turned down other clubs to come to us this summer.”
Saiz signed for Leeds today on a four year deal from Spanish side SD Huesca.
