David Norris believes Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has missed a trick by splashing out on another inexperienced goalkeeper rather than targeting Joe Hart.
Bielsa has added competition for first-choice shot-stopper Illan Meslier by signing Kristoffer Klaesson from Norwegian side Valerenga.
The move came after Kiko Casilla, who was previously 21-year-old Meslier’s understudy, completed a season-long loan switch to Spanish outfit Elche last month.
Should Leeds have made a move for Joe Hart?
However, with Klaesson being a year younger than Meslier, former Leeds midfielder Norris feels the Yorkshire side should have plumped for a more experienced goalkeeper who was available.
While Leeds headed to Norway to secure Klaesson’s services, Scottish Premiership giants Celtic pounced on Hart’s situation and confirmed the ex-Manchester City goalkeeper’s acquisition earlier this week.
Norris thinks Bielsa missed a glorious opportunity to add a Premier League champion to his ranks.
He exclusively told Football FanCast: “I think that he would have been perfect. He’s a good goalkeeper and had a great career.
“He wouldn’t have been desperate to play because he probably knows he’s on the way down but he has so much experience, is in good shape and is a good pro. I think that would have been a great signing.”
