New goalkeeper on joining Leeds.
New Leeds United signing Joel Robles spoke exclusively to LUTV after becoming the club’s eighth arrival of the summer transfer window.
The experienced 32-year-old goalkeeper has arrived at Elland Road on a free transfer from Spanish side Real Betis, signing a one-year deal.
Having played in the top-flight with Everton and Wigan Athletic and having won the FA Cup with the latter in 2013, Robles is looking forward to his third spell in English football.
“I’m really excited to be back in the Premier League four years later,” said Robles.
“This is a fantastic club, I’d like to thank Leeds United for this great opportunity to come back, this is a special football club and I’m excited to come here.
“There are very good fans here and a very good squad as well and I think this is a good option for me to keep growing.
“My objective this season is to have a positive mentality, work hard and help my teammates, to help achieve our overall objectives as a team.
“We have three goalkeepers here now and we’ll work together to help the team, this is the objective for everyone.
“At 32 I have a lot of experience behind me, the two goalkeepers are 21 and 22 and I will try to help them.
“It was the best start with three points at home, we played very well and I hope we keep this mentality for the next game against Southampton.”
