Illan Meslier is a player that Leeds United fans want to see commit to the club beyond the end of the season.
Leeds currently have Meslier on a season-long loan from Lorient and despite the goalkeeper making only three appearances across all competitions this season, he’s been an instant hit with the fans.
Currently serving as Marcelo Bielsa’s first choice, Meslier has kept back-to-back clean sheets in the Championship, helping the Whites to the top of the table.
And, his off-field Twitter activity indicates he’s open to a Leeds move, with Meslier re-tweeting a transfer story discussing Leeds’ desire to sign him permanently.
With that in mind, many Leeds fans took to Facebook to discuss Meslier, centring their comments around his undeniable potential….
Rhys Meredith: “Reminds me of a young de Gea but with better distribution. Needs another good keeper to work alongside him as he will be bullied in the Prem with his build, but de Gea was exactly the same and he didn’t turn out to bad”
Graham Scaife: “Miles better than Kiko. I’d have him first choice every time.”

Garry Darch “Best young keeper I’ve ever seen at Leeds and will be worth millions soon”
Aaron Herring: “Need to get a deal sorted for him, definitely should be our number one, he will be much sought after and worth many millions with a season or two”
Chris Thompson: “We all want Meslier to stay for a very long time from what we have seen already. So young, so talented.”
Alice Stare-Roads: “We must sign him. He’s an unbelievable talent”
Tom Howe: “Great player with a great future”
Chris Donaghue: “Sign him he is a really good goalkeeper”
