Martyn: Leeds will eventually lose Meslier

Former Leeds United goalkeeper Nigel Martyn believes Ilan Meslier will eventually leave Elland Road.

Martyn has warned Leeds fans to enjoy Meslier while they can before clubs like Man Utd and Leicester come knocking.

The club legend told The Sun: “He won't realise it now but he's nowhere near his best.

“The toughest thing will be keeping hold of him in the next two or three years, when he really starts to develop.

“With the saves he makes at such a young age, there will be people watching him already and just timing when they want to make the call to try and get him.

“The thing for us is to enjoy him for as long as we can and try to keep hold of him for as long as we can.

“I'm a big fan. He was getting a bit of grief a couple of years ago so I posted a picture on Twitter of me at that age, playing in the Cornwall senior cup for St Blazey!

“Development wise, he is miles ahead of where I was."
