Leeds United fans want Illan Meslier signed on a permanent deal

Some details have emerged regarding the terms of Meslier’s loan agreement at Elland Road.

A report in France by Ouest-France via Sport Witness has suggested some of the finer details regarding the loan agreement of Leeds United goalkeeper Illan Meslier.

It is thought that Leeds will be obliged to buy the young Frenchman if they are promoted to the Premier League, or if the 19-year-old makes 10 appearances for the first-team.

Meslier will cost the Whites £5 million and he could be about to be handed a run of games in the first-team. The current number one Kiko Casilla is set to find out the result of an FA investigation which could see him banned.

Marcelo Bielsa has viewed Meslier as an understudy this season. His only first-team appearance came against Arsenal in the FA Cup; with the Whites losing 1-0.

At £5 million he might represent a steal. He has shown tremendous potential during his time playing with the club’s under-23 ranks and looks to have all the attributes to shine.

Following this latest news of the potential hurdles which Leeds must jump to land Meslier, supporters have been reacting.

Many think it’s a no-brainer, particularly given the erratic nature of Casilla. Here is a selection of tweets from Leeds supporters who are hoping a permanent deal for the Lorient player can be struck.
