Leeds United bring in goalkeeper Jamal Blackman on loan from Chelsea following the recent departures of Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan.

Championship side Leeds United have confirmed the arrival of goalkeeper Jamal Blackman from Chelsea on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old already boasts experience of life in the second tier following a stint with Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United last season.

After parting ways with Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan this summer, Leeds have now turned to Blackman for the duration of the 2018-19 campaign.

Blackman kept nine clean sheets in 33 appearances for the Blades last term and has also had temporary spells with Ostersunds and Wycombe Wanderers.

Leeds have made just one other signing so far since Marcelo Bielsa was appointed, with Lewis Baker also coming in on loan from Chelsea.
