Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier hints that he’s already had discussions to join the club permanently

Speaking in an interview with Goal France, 19-year-old French shot-stopper Illan Meslier appeared to confirm that he had already had discussions with Leeds representatives about making his current loan spell permanent from Ligue 2 side Lorient this summer.

“Why not! I came here to continue learning and to finish the forming stage of my career. Maybe one day I will be passed the torch (by Kiko Casilla).”
