Championship leaders Leeds United have completed the signing of experienced goalkeeper Kiko Casilla on a four-year deal from Real Madrid.
The 32-year-old, who reportedly bought out the remaining 18 months on his Madrid contract, joins Leeds for free after spending the last three-and-a-half years as back-up at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Casilla came through the ranks at Madrid before departing for Espanyol in 2007.
It was in Catalonia where Casilla had the best years of his career, building a strong reputation for himself particularly in the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons.
His form in the latter campaign earned him a return to Madrid as back-up to Keylor Navas and he has made 43 appearances in all competitions since.
The Spaniard is Marcelo Bielsa’s first signing of the transfer window and he will compete with Bailey Peacock-Farrell to become first choice between the posts.
