Illan Meslier joined Leeds United on a season-long loan deal from FC Lorient last summer and the Whites have an option to make the goalkeeper’s transfer permanent.

The French club have achieved promotion to Ligue 1 and have already started planning for next season.

On May 17th, Ouest-France explained the 20-year-old has no place at Lorient and they are of the belief Leeds will make the keeper’s stay permanent at Elland Road.

According to MhscOnAir, Amiens goalkeeper Matthieu Dreyer is expected to join the Ligue 2 winners and the deal is to be made official in the ‘coming days’.

MhscOnAir’s report on Dreyer has been relayed by Le11Amiénois and they provide a further update on the 31-year-old’s possibility of joining Lorient.

It’s claimed Dreyer has been a priority for Lorient, but his signing is ‘still subject to the final transfer of Illan Meslier to Leeds’.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side can retain the France U20 international for €5m and the report adds Leeds should exercise the option once the Championship resumes.
