Leeds United agree formal deal for Joel Robles

Leeds United have now reached an official agreement to complete the signing of Joel Robles, according to Diario AS on Twitter.

The Spanish outlet also reported on its website that Victor Orta and goalkeeping coach Marcos Abad were key to the transfer, with the 32-year-old set to arrive as a free agent.

Robles will complete his medical early next week and will arrive to add his experience to the goalkeeping department alongside Illan Meslier and Kristoffer Klaesson.

Writing on their official Twitter account late Friday night, AS shared that an agreement was reached in the late hours of the day.

“Leeds reach agreement with Joel Robles,” they wrote.

“He was without a team and would arrive as a free player, as AS progressed.”


Orta has his man, and it seems only the doctor is left.

Robles has practically signed on the dotted line and will travel to West Yorkshire over the weekend to make everything official early next week.

It has been reported that his medical will take place at the start of the second Premier League matchweek, with things starting later today against Wolves.

Orta and Abad have clearly come together to work on this one, identifying the best kind of keeper needed for these young players who could do with an experienced header around them.

This new player can’t come in and expect to steal Meslier’s number one shirt, and it looks like Robles is happy to sign for this new type of role.

With a deal done, all that’s left is the most important medical and then we should see that one announced and Robles in the squad for the trip to Southampton.

Bring it on.
