Sky Sports pundit Stephen Warnock believes Leeds United have landed themselves a big coup after completing the signing of Kiko Casilla on a free transfer from Real Madrid. The 32-year-old has been a proven winner with Los Blancos in recent seasons and Warnock feels the shot-stopper could make the underlining difference in Leeds’ promotion push under Marcelo Bielsa.
Speaking to Football League World, he said: “He’s one of those where pedigree is good, the club he’s coming in from is very good,” Warnock told Football League World. He (Bielsa) obviously feels he needs a goalkeeper to get him over the line and he probably feels that this is the signing that helps Leeds over the line. It’s a big signing for them, I think he’s signed a four-and-a-half year deal, so it shows their intent to him. I think it’s a good signing for both parties.”

Sky Sports pundit Stephen Warnock has placed a huge compliment on Leroy Sane by comparing the German attacker with Premier League and Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs. The Germany international endured a tough start to the top-flight season with Manchester City but he has sorted himself over the past few months where he has contributed six goals and six assists from just seven league starts.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Warnock has praised the qualities of Sane and believes the German would be the closest that can be compared to Giggs, he said: “Leroy Sane is the closest thing we’ve seen to Ryan Giggs in years. His ability to glide past players makes it look effortless. But what I like about the two wingers is when the ball’s on the opposite side as we saw last night with Sane’s goal and with [Riyad] Mahrez’s goal later on is that they become a second striker when the ball’s on the opposite side of the pitch and it’s something that Pep’s making sure that they do. It’s getting men in the box, it’s getting people in the right areas and that’s why they’re scoring so many goals.”
