LEEDS United have confirmed the signing of Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

The experienced 32-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half year deal at Elland Road, running until the summer of 2023, and is the first signing for United in the January window.

Casilla, who will compete with Bailey Peacock-Farrell for the keeper's shirt, started his career at the Bernabeu, before moving to Espanyol in 2007, from where he had loan stints at Cádiz CF and FC Cartagena.

He went onto establish himself as Espanyol’s first choice goalkeeper and his performances led to a first international cap for Spain in November 2014.

At the end of the 2014/15 La Liga campaign, Casilla was re-signed by Real Madrid, eight years after leaving for Espanyol.

Over the past three seasons, Casilla has made 43 appearances for Real in all competitions.

He played games in each of their three UEFA Champions League successes since 2016 and was also between the sticks for their Super Cup final success in the same year.
