Leeds United confirmed the signing of Kiko Casilla earlier today.

The former Real Madrid keeper has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Championship giants.

Marcelo Bielsa was keen on signing a new number one keeper and Casilla should prove to be a quality addition.

The Spaniard has a lot of experience at the top level and he could make a tremendous difference to Leeds during the second half of the season.

The Whites are in a title race and Casilla’s experience and mentality could be vital. He was part of a very successful Real Madrid dressing room.

Furthermore, the Spaniard will be a big upgrade on Bailey Peacock-Farrell and the fans will be excited to see their new signing in action soon.

Bielsa has lavished praise on his January signing and he claimed that Casilla is a complete player whose career speaks for itself. He also praised Victor Orta for managing to pull off the transfer.
