Leeds United have discussed signing goalkeeper Ben Foster on a free transfer.
The Lowdown: Whites after an experienced goalkeeper
Jesse Marsch has made three summer signings so far in Brenden Aaronson, Ramus Kristensen and Marc Roca and appears to be on the hunt for more.
The Latest: Leeds talks leaked
Jones leaked talks from inside Elland Road, claiming that Foster’s name has been ‘mentioned’ in discussions ahead of a possible move.
The Verdict: Record breaker!
The 39-year-old was labelled ‘unbelievable’ by his former manager Nigel Pearson and has the record for the most saves of any goalkeeper in Premier League history, so a cut-price move could be a wise call.
How many more signings do Leeds need after Aaronson, Kristensen and Roca?
Foster would bring plenty of experience and knowledge to Thorp Arch, something which could help Meslier take his game to the next level in England. He also made 29 Premier League appearances for Watford last season, so would provide adequate cover to the young Frenchman.
