Great news.

On a separate note, I hope Messiah slept well after all that.

Never really took to Casilla myself, but he did well at Espanyol. At his best he was a decent enough backup for us, and at some point had people calling for him to take over from Navas (not that I was ever one of them).

I hope he does well for you, and wish Leeds well in general for the rest of the season.

Will be interesting uk see how this multi year keeper signing compare to the Felix deal.

Am hoping that any Bielsa input will improve Orta’s success ratio.

He was second choice before they signed Chelseas keeper.

Played 17 games for them last season

I centre us giving him a four and a half year deal to a player we signed as a back up.

Anyone who thinks we haven't signed this guy to be our number one for the foreseeable future is deluded

Did anyone suggest he wasn’t being signed as no 1?

If we’re lucky he might mature like a fine wine but the
4 1/2 years element is just the incentive to get him to come. Secures him for 3 years longer than his current deal. I’m sure if he’s that good he’d have had plenty of Spanish clubs prepared to offer him a deal... but obviously no one prepared to go 4 1/2 years for a 32 year old... keeper or not.

For us it’s just a cost of purchase spread out over a long period and saves us up front money we don’t really have at the moment.

Apparently Palace have enquired about Jack Clarke's availability

LMFAO!!

As if he'd want to go play for a South London tin pot club whose only ambition is PL survival ffs!!

They have one of the better English managers though Peak.
I would be looking to stay put if I was him though, best manager in the country for a young kid to learn from.
Hate to see him go the same way as Byram.

Byram had a hard time of it, but some bad injuries haven't helped him.
