Goalkeeper completes permanent move.
Leeds United are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Illan Meslier.
The French goalkeeper initially joined the club last summer on a season-long loan deal from FC Lorient and the move to Elland Road has now been made permanent.
Meslier has signed a three-year deal with Leeds United, running until the summer of 2023.
The 20-year-old made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Whites during the 2019/20 campaign, helping Leeds to win the Sky Bet Championship.
He made his Leeds debut in January’s FA Cup third round tie with Arsenal, before making his league debut away at Hull City in February.
In his 10 Championship games for the Whites, Meslier has been very impressive between the sticks, helping Marcelo Bielsa’s side keep seven clean sheets.
After progressing through the ranks with Lorient, the goalkeeper has also won caps with France at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 level.
He becomes the club’s second signing of the summer, after Helder Costa’s loan move also became permanent.
