Leeds United have approached and had a bid accepted for the Spanish Goalkeeper, Kiko Casilla. They are set to announce the completion of the signing early next week following a medical.
Casilla is 32 years old, and the 3rd choice Goalkeeper for European giants, Real Madrid. He’s a Goalkeeper who has Champions league experience, and is no stranger to playing out of the back at Real Madrid.
With a Goalkeeper of his experience coming in, it is no doubt that he is intended as the number 1, ahead of the Leeds United prodigy, Peacock-Farrell.
Casilla is a name that has been thrown around inside the club, but with negotiations with Karl Darlow being unsuccessful, it means that Casilla is someone Leeds had in mind as an alternative – our team at lufc-news believes.
His career and status isn’t befitting by being a third choice Goalkeeper at his age, meaning a move to Leeds United isn’t unlikely. It is understood that Leeds have had a bid accepted, and player negotiations are going smoothly, with the wage of the Goalkeeper already agreed and a medical due early next week.
According to reports, Leeds are ready to announce the experienced Keeper early next week if negotiations remain successful.
