Kamil Miazek: What do we know about Leeds’ latest recruit?
Leeds United have offered 21 year-old goalkeeper Kamil Miazek a contract, according to reports. The former Feyenoord stopper has impressed on trial at Elland Road after leaving Polish side, Chojniczanka Chojnice. So what do we actually know about Miazek, who was once likened to Wojech Szczesny?
He is a former Feyenoord trainee at which point he was very highly rated and earned him a call-up for Poland under-19’s. He played at various different levels for the Feyenoord academy and was last playing for Polish second division side, Chojniczanka Chojnice until he was offered a trial at Barnsley. The Tykes are still reportedly interested in signing the youngster but Leeds are said to be his favoured choice and the Whites’ approach for the Pole has stopped any deal from Barnsley materialising.
With German ‘keeper, Felix Wiedweld installed as the clubs number one choice thus far and Andy Lonergan seemingly number two, it is more than likely Miazek is favoured to be part of the under-23 setup. The signing of Miazek means that a loan departure of fellow young ‘keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell is more than likely in January.
Miazek will be part of an ongoing project at Leeds involving the under-23’s joining a plethora of highly rated Europeans that have all made the move over to Elland Road in the summer.
