The good news is, we made a signing.

The bad news is, he probably isn’t going to be playing for the first team, and it’s a position that we’re pretty well stocked up in at the moment.

Leeds United confirmed yesterday the signing of 18-year-old goalkeeper Elia Caprile from Italian side Chievo Verona, with SBNation reporting that he is likely to head into the U23 team for the rest of the season. Although what that’s likely to do to incumbent Illan Meslier, we’ll just have to wait and see.

What we won’t have to wait for though is the reaction of the Leeds United fanbase, who were not best pleased to see his name pop up on their news feed, because they were hoping that it would be someone else signing on the dotted line, preferably someone who could put the ball in the back of the net rather than keeping the ball out of it.

Are Leeds focusing on the wrong areas?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Phil Hay reported a few weeks ago that Caprile was ‘the first of three targets’ that Leeds were looking for during this transfer window, so it’s still possible that the club can bring in that forward that the fans are clamouring for.
