Leeds United have impressed in the Championship so far this season, leading the way and standing with a good chance of returning to the Premier League this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa has led the Peacocks to significant improvements but he is under no illusion that there is still work to be done at Elland Road, which is why he moved in the market to secure goalkeeper Kiko Casilla from Real Madrid.

The Yorkshire outfit confirmed the signature of the 33-year-old Spain international on Thursday, with the Champions League winner set to compete with Bailey Peacock-Farrell for a starting spot over the course of the coming months.

It certainly is a significant coup for a club in the second-tier of English football and fans on social media were delighted with the business, welcoming Casilla to the club with open arms and expressing their confidence that he will help them return to the Premier League.

We have gathered some of their comments below.
