Real Madrid's third-choice keeper Kiko Casilla is a rumoured transfer target for Championship leaders Leeds United.

Leeds United are hoping to bring in goalkeeper Kiko Casilla on a permanent deal from Real Madrid, according to a report.

The 32-year-old has been relegated to third choice at the Bernabeu behind Keylor Navas and summer signing Thibaut Courtois.

Championship leaders Leeds have been on the lookout for a new keeper this month and, after suffering a couple of setbacks, Marcelo Bielsa now appears to have identified a big-name stopper to help with his side's promotion push.

Sky Sports News suggests that Casilla, yet to feature for Madrid in any competition this season, has opened talks with United over a shock switch to the second tier of English football.

Casilla, under contract with Madrid until the end of next season, made 17 appearances for Los Blancos in 2017-18 and has one senior Spain international cap to his name.
