Known for his athleticism and shot-stopping ability, 24-year-old Meslier has been a model of consistency throughout a season in which Leeds challenged for automatic promotion.

He has split his clean sheets evenly between home and away games this season with nine of them coming away from Elland Road.

Meslier played for French club FC Lorient in his native Brittany before initially joining Leeds on loan as a teenager in August 2019.

He made the move permanent the following summer and has now made 161 league appearances for the Yorkshire side.

Meslier said: “It has been a real collective effort as a team, that we have managed to keep the most clean sheets in the Sky Bet Championship this season.

“It is an achievement as a group which we can all be proud of and has helped us have a really good season, which we hope will get even better at the very end.”

Palmer has drawn praise for his performances in the Albion goal and his organisation of a defence that improved as the season progressed.

“But there have been times where I’ve had to stay sharp and focused to make those crucial saves – whether that’s been in the last minute against Norwich, the penalty against Millwall or in the latter stages against QPR.

“The clean sheets award is a massive one for me and I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t been keeping an eye on them this season. Going into the final day, I was hoping we could keep one more and match the highest number.

“It’s a proud achievement and one you want to get, and it comes as a result of a team effort this season.”

The Sky Bet Championship Golden Boot was won by Blackburn Rovers’ Sammie Szmodics who scored 25 goals.
