Leeds United have signed Spanish goalkeeper Joel Robles on a free transfer, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old, who left Spanish side Real Betis following the conclusion of the 2021-2022 campaign, has signed a one-year contract with the club.

"There are very good fans here and a very good squad as well and I think this is a good option for me to keep growing," Robles said.
