Leeds United Set For Huge Signing As Real Madrid Goalkeeper Kiko Casilla Nears Move

Leeds United Set For Huge Signing As Real Madrid Goalkeeper Kiko Casilla Nears Move
By Maurice Brosnan

Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla is close to completing a move to Championship club Leeds United.

The Spanish goalkeeper missed training with Real Madrid this morning and the Yorkshire Evening Post report that he is already on route to the UK to complete a deal and join Marcelo Bielsa's outfit.

The deal will reportedly see Leeds buy out the remainder of Casilla's contract. They will pay the 32-year-old's wages and any additional costs but will not be required to pay a transfer fee. His current deal still has 18-months left, running until June 2020.

While Thibaut Courtois has been struggling with an injury, the availability of Luca Zidane and Keylor Navas means first-team opportunities have been limited for Casilla.

Leeds United look set for a busy January period, with the club also linked to Swansea City winger Daniel James.
