According to the report, Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa was also interested in Fulham goalkeeper Fabri.
Interest from Newcastle United
Calciomercato.com recently reported of Newcastle United’s interest in signing Casilla from Madrid in the January transfer window.
Good signing for Leeds United
Casilla came through the Madrid youth academy, but the Spain international goalkeeper has struggled to break into the first team.
The 32-year-old was quite successful during his time at Espanyol, and since returning to Madrid in 2015, he has made just a handful of appearances for Los Blancos, although he has won the Champions League three times with the Spanish giants.
The goalkeeper has not played a single competitive match for Madrid so far this season, but the 32-year-old is a good player who will compete with Bailey Peacock-Farrell for a place in Leeds starting lineup.
