The Spanish international has recorded three goals and an assist in his last three outings, and fellow forward Patrick Bamford is delighted to see him produce his best work after a stuttering debut season in England.

Speaking on the Official Leeds United podcast, Bamford said: “The pass he played for my goal [at Southampton], you know technically he is so good.

“His vision is so good. For me, it is a shame that I never really got to play with him constantly. He got Covid then he got injured and then got another injury.

“It took him a while to get in the team. That pass and the vision just showed it. He played another one where I probably should’ve squared it but shot from a tight angle.

“I’d love playing with him because he likes dropping short all the time and getting on the ball. I want to play with the best players. He’s obviously a Spanish international and you look forward to playing with the best.”
