Leeds United have taken their pre-season preparations to Australia as they target another promotion push next season, and plenty of footage has been emerging of the Whites down under.
The Whites have been training in Perth ahead of a friendly clash against Manchester United on Wednesday before concluding their tour with a match against Western Sydney on Saturday.
Marcelo Bielsa will be targeting promotion next season following the disappointing end to last season’s campaign, and he has already strengthened his side with five senior additions this summer.
However, there have also been some exits with young talent Jack Clarke joining Tottenham Hotspur and defender Pontus Jansson joining Brentford, and there could yet be more departures before the window closes.
Football Insider have reported that Leeds are seeking a buyer for goalkeeper Kiko Casilla in an attempt to remove his high wages from their books, despite the fact he signed a four-and-a-half year deal with the club in January.
Despite this, Casilla has still headed out to Perth with the side and he has been pictured interacting with Leeds fans down under:

The 32-year-old’s act of good will towards the young Leeds fan then prompted an interesting social media reaction from plenty of Whites supporters.
Here are some of the best responses…
Best fans in the world deserve this! Little gesture @KikoCasilla13 ????????
