‘Love you already’ – Many Leeds United fans react to deadline day signing’s message



Leeds United deadline day signing Illan Meslier has posted a message on Instagram after joining the club, which has drawn an excited response from many Whites supporters.

The goalkeeper signed on a season-long loan from Ligue 2 side Lorient, with a reported option to buy included in the deal.

The 19-year-old only made his senior debut at the French club last August but went on to make 30 appearances in the 2018/19 season, keeping 11 clean sheets.

Meslier, who has been capped for France at both under-18 and under-19 level, will likely serve as a back-up to Kiko Casilla after Bailey Peacock-Farrell joined Burnley this summer.

The teenager sent a message to Leeds fans this morning via his Instagram.

The Frenchman said: “I am very happy to come to this club in Leeds United, and I am ready for new challenges in my new club.”

Meslier could be included in the Whites squad to face Nottingham Forest at Elland Road on Saturday, subject to international clearance.

Championship Picks

The teenager seems to be a popular figure in West Yorkshire already and his message received an excited response from many fans.
