Samu Saiz still wants to leave Leeds and return to Spain permanently next summer despite his torrid loan spell with Getafe.

According to TEAMtalk, the 28-year-old will try to find a different La Liga club when the summer transfer window opens.

The Spaniard forced a move away from Leeds in January, joining Getafe on loan with an option to buy, but he has only started two league matches since.

Leeds youngster Sam Dalby was dropped to Morecambe’s reserves for a recent Central League match against Doncaster Rovers reserves, Morecambe’s website confirmed.

The 19-year-old joined Morecambe to get minutes under his belt and help the League Two side’s survival bid.

 

But he has since managed just five minutes across two matches, although he did score in the 1-1 draw for Morecambe’s reserves.

While Dalby struggles at Morecambe, fellow academy striker Mallik Wilks is thriving on loan at Doncaster.

Rovers manager Grant McCann has praised the 20-year-old after he netted his 13th goal of the season, won the match of the match award and was nominated for the PFA Bristol Street Motors Player of the Month award, The Doncaster Free Press reports.

McCann said: “This is what I expected we would get from him but I think he can be better. The lad has got everything to play in the Championship, whether that’s with Leeds, us or somebody else. He’s got all the attributes.”
