Leeds United have completed the signing of midfielder Samuel Saiz from SD Huesca on a four-year contract.

The two clubs announced on Monday they had agreed an undisclosed fee and the 26-year-old has now agreed personal terms and completed a medical.

Meanwhile, full-back Giuseppe Bellusci has no future at the club, according to head coach Thomas Christiansen.

The 27-year-old did not feature for the Championship side last season and was loaned out to Serie A club Empoli.

"Bellusci is already out," Christiansen told BBC Radio Leeds after the club's 2-0 pre-season friendly win at North Ferriby United on Wednesday.

"The situation was not easy but we understood that it was best for the team and the club."
