The Whites are working their way towards a second season back in the Premier League following a superb ninth-placed finish upon their top-flight return.

Leeds will be looking to kick on again next term and the Whites have seven players representing their nations at this summer's European Championships.

The Yorkshire Evening Post brings you all the latest Leeds United transfer talk here, as well as the other main headline Premier League rumours.

Whites 'keeper Illan Meslier is one of United's crown jewels and the French stopper has been talking about his affection for Leeds in an interview with French regional Le Telegramme.

"It's a special club because of its history," Meslier told Le Telegramme.

"It's a bit like Saint-Etienne and Lens back home. There is an exceptional atmosphere in the stadium, with great supporters who like to make noises and sing songs - which I don't understand - but there are no insults in England.

"It's a crazy atmosphere like in Liverpool, Manchester, it gives you the shivers.

"At Leeds, it's 36,000 fans at normal time, it's really the twelfth man, it's beautiful. You love it. Just a defensive tackle, the stadium stands up.

"lWhen I make a save, everyone applauds. After that, you have to perform well."

"At one point, I did not perform as well as I should have, but I was always encouraged, I was never spat on. The only ones who sent negative messages were the French. I have great respect for the fans because they have always been there for me and I hope to always be there for them."
