Whites recruit goalkeeper.

Leeds United are pleased to announce the arrival of goalkeeper Illan Meslier.

The 19-year-old joins the Whites from Ligue 2 side Lorient on a season-long loan deal.

Meslier made his senior debut at Lorient last August, in a 1-0 victory over Valenciennes in the Coupe de la Ligue.

In total he made 30 appearances for the French side during the 2018/19 campaign in all competitions, recording 11 clean sheets.

He has also won caps at both Under-18 and Under-19 level with France.

Subject to international clearance, Meslier could be included in the Leeds squad for the first time in Saturday’s clash with Nottingham Forest at Elland Road.
