Back in February, Leeds United were being linked with a move for Spanish attacking midfielder Álex Gallar. The 25-year-old playmaker had been in fine form in the Spanish second-tier with SD Huesca.
Diario De Leon suggested Leeds were keen on signing the player in the summer. The report suggested the Elland Road outfit became aware of his talent after he played with the Aspire Academy linked side, Cultural Leonesa, last season.
His form with Cultural saw him signed by Huesca as a replacement for Samuel Saiz, who had joined Leeds United. Saiz was the star at Huesca, but Gallar took that mantle.
Leeds chances of shining Gallar appeared to die out the moment Huesca secured promotion to La Liga. It was a momentous occasion for the club, as it will be their first ever time in the Spanish top-flight.
Yesterday, they took on Eibar in their first ever La Liga game, winning 2-1 on the road. The man who was the hero for Huesca, was, in fact, the former Leeds target.
Gallar scored both goals for Huesca. Leeds United director of football Victor Orta will no doubt still be keeping tabs on a player who has enjoyed a fantastic start to the new season.
If he keeps up this form and Leeds head to the Premier League, perhaps Gallar could be back on their radar.
