Phil Hay confirms about Casilla. Cracking signing. 3 champions league wins on his CVs.
Assuming this means BPF drops to the bench?

Never heard of him but we need a more experienced number 1 as we head to the run in...BPF has a lot of potential but is still learning
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Phillips - Cooper - Douglas - Alioski - Klich - Hernandez - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

Shame for BPF but I'm sure he's enjoying the ride and he'll be better for it when/if he comes back.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla will land in Leeds&Bradford airport around 1pm Saturday afternoon ahead of his medical at Leeds United. :tup:

Needs to learn a hell of a lot - his performance against Derby did him no favours.

This does seem a lot of money for a 32 year old with not much game time this season.

Apparently the Spanish player is happening, but no name given, other than it's someone we all know.
Is this on top of Casilla?

No it's him.

But talk of 2 more in before Stoke, just personnal details to thrash out. Not a clue who they are, except one's a winger.

Things starting to pick up a bit of pace on the transfer front, exciting few months ahead!! When you think of the luck we’ve had, the additions to the squad are really going to help us kick on,

The Scum claiming we're after Daniel James and Jefferson Montero from Swansea. James would be £2.5m and Montero a loan.

Wouldn't mind Montero as an option off the bench to run at tired defences. I know very little of James. 16 games 1 goal 4 assists this season. Suggests he'd be no better than what we already have.

No better than Clarke, certainly. Could do with another forward though and a loan might be the way to go.

Guillem Belague suggesting on Twitter that Kiko Casilla will be a free transfer, with Leeds just taking on his (presumably fairly substantial) wages.

Shrewd bit of business if it helps us to the Prem.

It was suggested earlier Leeds were paying his contract off . 7mil euros. Can't see Leeds paying that for a 32 yr old GK who's hardly played this season.

Apparently it's something like £30k a week for 18 months, so it's like £2.2m. Certainly not breaking the bank, though I do wonder whether we're looking at selling someone to offshoot it or Radz has changed his plans.
