Elche goalkeeper Kiko Casilla confident Leeds won't demand return

Elche goalkeeper Kiko Casilla says a return to parent club Leeds United is unlikely.

Casilla is on-loan at Elche from the Premier League club this season.

He told Mundo Deportivo: "I'm really happy. From day one, Elche was my first choice for the project and for the desire I had to return and they wanted me to come here. Everything went well for it to come together and I am very happy and enjoying football again.

"It will be difficult for me to fulfill the year I have left (at Leeds). When I left there it was because my time there is over. I think I will not have problems with the club because they behaved very well with me because I asked to leave and they never put any impediment on me, but they gave me all the facilities and that is appreciated.

"When you have a bad time there, I've been through a lot and that is clear, in the end what you want is to leave and I have been able to leave."
