Leeds in talks for Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla

Leeds United are in talks for Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

Sky Sports says the Championship leaders have been short of cover since losing Chelsea loanee Jamal Blackman to a broken leg in November and Marcelo Bielsa appears to have identified a replacement.

The 32-year-old Spanish goalkeeper has fallen down the pecking order at the Bernabeu since Thibaut Courtois arrived from Chelsea last summer and has yet to feature this season.

The former Spain international made 17 appearances for Real last season, including their 3-1 defeat to Tottenham in the Champions League group stage.

Northern Ireland goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell has occupied the number one jersey at Elland Road so far this season, but the 22-year-old has been inconsistent at times.
