Kristoffer Klaesson The Goalie For Leeds United Is Close To Signing A Contract

Why is Leeds interested in signing him?
As Kiko Casilla left Elland Road for a season-long loan to Spanish club Elche last week, the 20-year-old was installed as Leeds’ first choice.
Soon after Casillas departure, United’s director of football Victor Orta is said to have spoken with Klaesson and his representatives in Norway, and the goalkeeper is expected to accept Leeds’ offer.
Is this an agreed-upon deal?
He played last night in a Europa League Conference match between Valarenga and Gent, which Valarenga lost 4-0, and his transfer is conditional on Leeds obtaining a work visa for him.
After a change in English laws as a result of Brexit, United was compelled to submit an application for a permit to a FIFA panel.
Klaesson is expected to join as the number two option behind France youth international Illan Meslier, who is now Leeds’ first choice.
What kind of background does he have?
Klaesson is a Norway Under-21 international who has played for Valarenga in the country’s top division and has made over 50 appearances for the club.
