Kiko Casilla is reportedly quitting Leeds to join LaLiga side Elche because he doesn't want to sit on the bench for another season.

The former Real Madrid keeper played just three times in the Premier League in 2020-21, having lost the No 1 spot to Illan Meslier last February after serving an eight-match suspension for racial abuse.

Casilla is aware that his game time will be limited once again next season and according to The Mirror will leave the club so he can return home to Spain by joining Elche on a season-long loan.

Elche, who narrowly avoided relegation from LaLiga last season, have reportedly agreed to pay a portion of his wages and will have the option to sign Casilla on a permanent basis at the end of his loan.

The 34-year-old also wanted to be closer to his family, having found it hard to be separated from them during lockdown and will likely get regular first-team football with Elche.

Casilla's time at Elland Road was marred by his racial abuse charge, having been found guilty in February 2020 of using racist language towards West Brom's Jonathan Leko during a game against Charlton. He was subsequently hit with an eight-game suspension and has only made four league appearances for the club since.
