Leeds: Source shares Kristoffer Klaesson update

Leeds: Source shares Kristoffer Klaesson update -Leeds United

Leeds United are in advanced talks over a deal for Valerenga goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Casilla’s departure

The Whites are on the hunt for another goalkeeper after Kiko Casilla completed a switch away from Elland Road earlier this month.

Casilla, who joined Leeds back in January 2019, made the move to La Liga side Elche on loan for the upcoming campaign.

The Yorkshire Evening Post claimed the Whites shortlisted Klaesson, Levante’s Dani Cardenas and Newcastle United’s Freddie Woodman as potential replacements for the 34-year-old, and it seems as if they are closing in on one of those three.

The Latest: Source shares Klaesson update

A Leeds source informed Football Insider on Thursday that discussions were progressing well over a deal for Klaesson and the 20-year-old has been offered an Elland Road contract.

Leeds have applied for a work permit for the 6ft 2in shot-stopper, with a move edging closer.

Phil Hay backed up the update regarding Klaesson on Friday, revealing he will fly into England next week for a medical.

The Verdict: Orta has acted fast

Casilla sealed his Whites exit less than two weeks ago, so Leeds’ director of football Victor Orta has acted relatively quickly in regards to signing his replacement.

There have been productive negotiations between Leeds and Valerenga over the last fortnight, with Klaesson playing in a Europa League Conference fixture on Thursday evening.

Attention will more than likely turn to a new central midfielder, should a deal for Klaesson get over the line, and it seems as if the Whites’ senior and academy business is shaping up nicely ahead of the new campaign.
