Leeds United have no plans to listen to offers for goalkeeper Illan Meslier this summer, Football Insider has learned.
The goalkeeper has been linked this week with Paris Saint-Germain and he has also been on the radar of Premier League rivals West Ham.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider that the club will not be selling Meslier and he will remain their number one next season.
That will be music to the ears of United fans concerned at the growing noise surrounding the future of the keeper, who turned 21 earlier this month.
Meslier has developed into one of the best young shot-stoppers in the world during his two seasons at Elland Road.
He took over in goal from Kiko Casilla in the final months of the club’s promotion-winning campaign and has not looked back.
The Frenchman has started 28 of United’s 29 Premier League matches this season and kept an impressive nine clean sheets.
He has made some major errors but has also delivered some outstanding displays in an ultra-attacking side that does leave him occasionally exposed in goal.
There have been whispers over Meslier’s future in recent times.
He converted his initial one-season loan into a permanent move from Lorient last summer but his contract expires in two years’ time.
Speaking to the LUFC Fan Zone podcast, Xavier Fleury, Meslier’s agent, insisted “big clubs” were already taking an interest in the young shot-stopper.
One of those sides was West Ham, although their first choice Lukasz Fabianski subsequently signed a new contract earlier this month.
