The Lowdown: Robles linked with Leeds
Graham Smyth was the first journalist to break the news when it came to Leeds and Robles, revealing on Thursday that the free agent was set to sign for the Whites next week.
Reports in Spain then stated that goalkeeping coach Marcos Abad was helping Victor Orta when it came to the move, with an agreement thought to have been reached.
It looks like those claims are accurate, with Hay sharing what he knows ahead of a likely transfer.
The Latest: Hay’s update
Hay shared a story for The Athletic on Saturday to provide some transfer news ahead of Leeds’ Premier League opener against Wolves.
The reliable reporter revealed that an initial one-year deal has been agreed and that Robles will undergo a medical in time to train with the squad ahead of next weekend’s trip to Southampton. Hay is expecting a move to go through on Monday.
The Verdict: Good news
Where will Leeds finish this season?
Therefore, bringing in Robles for an initial 12 months to help Meslier in and around Thorp Arch seems like sensible business from Orta, and hopefully he’ll have a few more deals up his sleeve over the coming weeks for a new left-back and a forward.
