Leeds loan young French goalkeeper Illan Meslier
Meslier will replace Bailey Peacock-Farrell as Kiko Casilla’s challenger.
Leeds have announced the loan signing of goalkeeper Illan Meslier from Ligue 2 side Lorient.
The 19-year-old has joined for the whole of the 2019-20 season and is set to serve as understudy to Leeds’ current number one Kiko Casilla.
The Whites had sold back-up Bailey Peacock-Farrell to Burnley earlier in the month.
Meslier has won caps at both under-18 and under-19 level for France, and made 30 appearances for Lorient last season.
