Bringing a new goalkeeper to Elland Road is surely a priority for new Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
Felix Wiedwald has left the club to return to Germany, and a number of stoppers – including Manchester City’s Angus Gunn and Birmingham City’s David Stockdale – have been linked with a move to Leeds in this summer’s transfer window.
A deal for Stockdale looks difficult, however, and an alternative has been discussed by a selection of Leeds fans on social media.
Indeed, Boaz Myhill was released from West Bromwich Albion last week, and the former Wales international will therefore be available on a free transfer this summer.

Myhill has accumulated plenty of Premier League experience during his professional career, but only made two appearances for West Brom last term.
The Leeds supporters have been discussing a potential deal for the 35-year-old on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are struggling to come to an agreement.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
