How did Leeds United's loan players get on this weekend? We take a look at a busy few days of action for the Whites loanees across the divisions.

Samuel Saiz - Getafe

The Spaniard made his debut for his new side as he featured for the first time since making a swift exit from Elland Road last month. Saiz was a late substitute as Getafe took on giants Barcelona and Lionel Messi with the 27-year-old featuring for the final 16 minutes of the La Liga tie.

Messi and Luis Suarez bagged for the Catalan club as Ernesto Valverde's team ran out 2-1 winners on Sunday evening.

Mallik Wilks - Doncaster Rovers

The Whites loanee starred for Grant McCann's men on Sunday afternoon as Doncaster Rovers caused somewhat of an FA Cup shock beating Championship side Preston North End at Deepdale.
