Phil Hay says a GK on his way next week.

Rumours on Twitter saying it's an experienced international GK, but not sure how much truth in that.

Supposedly Joe Hart.

If it is Hart, wheel him out at HT tomorrow on the pitch. Live on Sky. Show everyone we mean business. :tup:

Didn't realise Reina was still playing, but he went to AC Milan in the summer and hasn't played yet in Serie A, only Europa. They have ffp issues so need to shift a few. Would certainly be a huge coup and knows English set pieces well.

If that's the calibre of player we're looking at, then I will hold my hands up and apologise.

It makes you wonder why we were so keen for Darlow instead though.

Just a guess.
More realistic than Navas.

I don't rate Hart... he has moved around alot since leaving City
and none of the clubs he has played for have wanted to keep him.
Leigh Griffiths put two past him at a recent international.
If you want someone to deal with set pieces then it is not him.
Just saying.
2016–2017 → Torino (loan) 36 (0)
2017–2018 → West Ham United (loan) 19 (0)
2018– Burnley 19 (0)
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

Remember those rumours that Fran Sol from Willem II was set to sign for Leeds United?

Well, turns out those rumours might have some legs to them after all. Real Salt Lake in MLS was reportedly all set to sign the 26 year-old Spanish striker from the Eredivisie until Leeds came in with a last-minute bid.

The transfer window is both exciting and frustrating to say the least.
I love and hate it in equal measures.
Please sign a couple of quality players soon Leeds FFS.

Apparently the Spanish player is happening, but no name given, other than it's someone we all know.

Never exciting for Leeds fans imo !

We generally sign players on the cheap who are no better than we already have in our squad & then there are the fair share of crocks we are attracted to over the years, worse still we sell one of our top young players.

Yes we have brought in the likes of Pontus, Pablo & Klich who have been fantastic signings but at the time of their signature I didn't know much about them so no excitement there, more a nice surprise once I saw them play for Leeds :o

Sweden’s Aftonbladet believe Paweł Cibicki is on the verge of leaving
Leeds United, and they present the transfer as being almost done.

Leeds United have approached, and had a bid accepted for the Spanish Goalkeeper, Kiko Casilla, and are set to announce the completion of the signing this Monday. He is due to fly to Leeds this weekend
