Leeds United are not planning to sell goalkeeper Illan Meslier this summer.
That’s according to an eport from Football Insider, who have been informed by a Leeds source that the Whites won’t listen to offers for the Frenchman and he will remain as Marcelo Bielsa’s number one next season.
Meslier’s impressive Leeds form
He’s missed just one Premier League game all season and his solid displays have resulted in his market value soaring from £4.05m to £15.3m in under 12 months.
Will Leeds be worth £1bn within 7 years?
Transfer Tavern take
His contract at Elland Road doesn’t expire until 2023, so Leeds aren’t exactly under major pressure to sell.
Bielsa is clearly happy with the towering youngster, believing he has had ‘a good season’. He’s placed his trust in Meslier over the experienced Kiko Casilla – with the former making a whopping 115 saves during the current campaign.
Meslier turned 21 earlier this month and it seems as if the Frenchman will continue to be first choice under Bielsa for the foreseeable future.
