According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United are nearing the signing of Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.
The report claims that Casilla will travel to England next week to undergo a medical before signing a contract with the Championship leaders.
Casilla re-joined Real Madrid from Espanyol in 2015 and has made 43 appearances for the European champions over the last four campaigns.
The 32-year-old dropped down to third choice last summer, however, when Los Blancos signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.
As a result, he has not been involved for the Spanish giants this season and is now nearing a move to Leeds, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
The news is huge for Leeds, who opened up a five-point lead at the top of the Championship table by beating Derby County 2-0 on Friday night.
And it would be fair to say that the Leeds supporters are excited about the prospect of Casilla making the move to Elland Road.
