We're actually signing Kiko Casilla on a permanent, wow. Is that the ambition people wanted?

Yes.

Radz must have read all the moaning on here. ;) :thumbup:

Good news, we need a GK.

BPF can still push for the no1 spot in the near future especially as this guy is 32, there is time for him to develop.

Hopefully he will quickly get to grips with crosses and set-pieces which always seem the achiles heel of GK coming to England but his distribution should be what Bielsa is after.

The Casilla rumour getting stronger. He's quiet tall as well therefore will be good at looking over fences :roll:

According to Alan Nixon from the Sun, we want either Dan James permanently or Jefferson Montero on loan from Swansea - both wingers.

Neither are good enough for this side, IMO.

I think Leighton James would be better and he's over 60! :D

With young players coming through, we don't need players just bolster the squad in case of injury just ones that would improve what we have. We seem to be also linked with Emiliano Martínez (in daily Mail) as well as Madrid's Casilla, so GK is definitely one position we should get filled. So a 26 year old or 32 year old. Casilla does seem the more experienced since Martinez has spent more times on loans in the lower league

Said it before, I'll say it again, we don't need anybody. This team/squad will continue to improve, the injured players will come back and give us an helping hand. I'm not sure how many times we play in midweek between now and the end of the season, 2 or 3 perhaps, off the top of my head. Cooper coming back is massive.

Kiko Casilla is positive about joining Leeds United as he sees a switch to the Yorkshire giants as a great chance to secure regular first team football.
Leeds are looking to bring in a goalkeeper this month and have zeroed in on Real Madrid's third choice custodian.
The Whites are in advanced talks to land Casilla and are aiming to get the 32-year-old in through the door at Elland Road.
And Casilla, who has made 43 appearances for Real Madrid since signing in 2015, is positive about the move, according to Madrid-based daily Marca.

The shot-stopper, who has not played for Real Madrid this season, sees the chance of regular first team football if he joins Leeds.
He would be expected to displace youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell as Leeds' number 1, with the Whites closing in on promotion to the Premier League.
Marcelo Bielsa has Leeds sitting top of the Championship table and looking in good shape to secure top flight football for next season.
Casilla started his career in the youth ranks at Real Madrid before then moving away to make his mark at senior level.
