Leeds are reportedly lining up a loan move for Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers this summer, with doubts emerging over Kiko Casilla’s future.

Travers played in Bournemouth’s final two Premier League matches of the season and despite being outstanding in the win over Tottenham, he has not been assured of a first-team place for the start of the new campaign.

With that in mind, the Irish Sun claims that the 20-year-old is considering a loan move away from the Vitality Stadium – news which is said to have alerted Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa and promoted Norwich.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell started the previous season as Bielsa’s number one at Elland Road but was replaced by Real Madrid stopper Casilla on a four-and-a-half-year deal during the January transfer window.

However, following a string of errors towards the end of the season, most noticeably in the play-offs – the report goes on to state that Casilla’s future has been thrown into doubt.
