Leeds: Kiko Casilla set to be released

Leeds: Kiko Casilla set to be released -Leeds United

Leeds United goalkeeper Kiko Casilla will reportedly be released when his Elland Road deal expires.

The Lowdown: Elche loan

The Whites brought in Kristoffer Klaesson over the summer as back up to Illan Meslier, a transfer which resulted in Casilla moving back to his native country.

The 35-year-old joined Elche on a season-long loan and started the club’s first 14 La Liga fixtures.

He recently made his 15th appearance for the club, over six months on from his last start, having lost his place to Edgar Badia.

The Latest: Leeds departure

Sports Witness relayed an update from Diario Informacion regarding Casilla on Tuesday.

They claimed that the goalkeeper will return to Yorkshire in the summer, and then ‘will be released after the end of his contract with Leeds’.

The Verdict: Contract terminated?

Casilla, labelled as a “complete liability“ by Leeds TV podcaster Oscar Mario, is actually under contract for a further 12 months at Elland Road.

Therefore, it could make sense for owner Andrea Radrizzani and director of football Victor Orta to terminate his deal over the coming months. He was replaced by Meslier as first choice at the beginning of 2020 and made just three Premier League appearances last season.

They’ve already made their mind up on releasing the shot-stopper, and with Leeds well-stocked in that department and possibly dropping down to the Championship next season, they could do with parting ways earlier than expected on Casilla’s contract worth over £32,000-a-week.
