Madrid keeper Casilla signs for Leeds United

Kiko Casilla won the Champions League three times during his four year spell at Real Madrid, and that's only the beginning of his incredible trophy haul at Los Blancos.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper has signed a contract until June 2023 with the English club, who now lie top of the Championship and are one of the favourites to advance to the Premier League.

But working with Casilla, who came through the system at Real Madrid and played for numerous years in La Liga with Espanyol, will give Peacock-Farrell every chance of becoming a future Leeds star.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 hero Michael McGovern hasn't played a league game for Norwich since April 2017 and played his last global in the World Cup play-offs against Switzerland in November of the same year. "I don't have to make any comment on Casilla because his career speaks for itself". The announcement was made this morning and the former Real Madrid player's arrival is fantastic business from Leeds. "I'm looking forward to what the rest of the campaign brings and I know Bailey, Callum and Matty will play a big part in that".

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa admitted to having spied on all opponents' training sessions this season, taking full responsibility for his actions in a long press briefing. This deal could now be damning for Peacock-Farrell's Leeds future.

Bielsa said Peacock-Farrell should be ready for the increase in competition and the threat to his shirt posed by the more experienced Casilla. "The profession of a player is to be compared with others". We compare them with the best ones to see who is going to the national team. "It's something that's in the profession".
