Leeds United have now reached an official agreement to complete the signing of Joel Robles, according to Diario AS over on Twitter.
The Spanish outlet has 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 the likes of Illan Meslier and Kristoffer Klaesson.
Writing on their official Twitter account late on Friday evening, AS shared that an agreement had been found in the late hours of the day.
“Leeds reach an agreement with Joel Robles,” they wrote.
“He was without a team and would arrive as a free player, as AS advanced.”
Orta has got his man, and it looks as though there is only the medical left.
Robles has all but signed on the dotted line and will make the trip across to West Yorkshire over the weekend to make everything official early next week.
It has been reported that his medical will happen at the start of match week two in the Premier League, with things kicking off 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 younger players who could do with an experienced head around them.
That new player can’t come in and expect to steal the number one shirt off Meslier though, and it looks as though Robles is happy to sign on for that new kind of role.
With an agreement reached, all that is left is the all-important medical and then we should see this one announced and Robles in the squad for the trip to Southampton.
Bring it on.
