According to theYorkshire Evening Post, the 28-year-old is unsettled at Leeds, and he is looking to reignite his career in Spain.
ESPN UK editor David Cartlidge tweeted that Saiz could move to Getafe on loan, with an option to buy him in the summer.
Torres said some players at Getafe already know who it is, but he couldn’t name the player tonight as “it would anger the English team”.
Sáiz would arrive as a loan, with option to buy.

Angel Torres, president of Getafe, said that the player will take a medical at the club next week, and could also be present at their game on Saturday.
Saiz scored nine goals and provided eight assists in 37 games for Leeds last season. However, he hasn’t been that impressive under Marcelo Bielsa this term.
Here are some of the best reactions from the Leeds fans on Twitter:
I’m not going lie I’m a bit gutted by this and it’s so Leeds to have this kind of news when things are going well. #lufc

hasn’t settled though, wife is pregnant and they’re keen to go home. The choice is whether to keep an unhappy player, which Leeds won’t. Been lengthy discussions about it today.

Such a shame with their being a strong Spanish speaking framework around Sáiz at Thorp Arch.

I think that’s exactly why he hasn’t been playing that much.

Shame but – strike the best deal for the club and invest it into the squad. Hope he stays though

Losing a player of Saiz’s quality will be a massive blow for promotion-chasing Leeds. It remains to be seen whether Izzy Brown, the on-loan summer signing from Chelsea, can step up in his absence.
