Rea Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla is close to completing a move to Leeds United, Sky Sports News understands.
The Sky Bet Championship leaders have been in advanced talks to sign the 32-year-old for around a week, with Leeds now close to securing the 32-year-old's signature.
Adding to the intrigue, Casilla's partner, Rosa Isern, has now also followed the Yorkshire club on Instagram.
Casilla has fallen further down the pecking order at the Bernabeu since Thibaut Courtois arrived from Chelsea last summer, with Keylor Navas also ahead of him in the reckoning at Real.
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is desperate for a new goalkeeper. Chelsea loanee Jamal Blackman broke a leg in November and Bielsa's only fit senior keeper is Northern Ireland international Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
League leaders Leeds are bidding to return to the Premier League after a 15-year absence and travel to the bet365 Stadium on Saturday to play Stoke.
