By Danny Wright
Leeds are on the verge of completing the signing of Polish goalkeeper Kamil Miazek, according to a reliable journalist.
BBC journalist Adam Pope claimed on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday morning that the ex-Feyenoord shot-stopper is poised to become a Leeds player outside of the transfer window.

This comes after academy scout Jakub Bokiej posted on his personal Twitter account on Monday afternoon that Miazek had been offered a contract by the Yorkshire club.
It now seems that the talks have reached the point where the young goalkeeper is poised to become the latest addition of the Leeds Under-23 side, which has a very heavy foreign influence after a great deal of investment.
Bokiej has also recently revealed that the former Poland Under-19 international had a trial period with Barnsley before going to Leeds.

Football Insider Verdict
Leeds have done a lot to bolster their Under-23 side this season but they could be going too far with bringing in all these foreign imports. Players like Kun Temenuzkhov, Oriol Rey and Adrian Balboa may be muting the chance that young English players have of impressing the youth coaching set-up, much like Lewis Cook, Charlie Taylor and Ronald Vieira have done in recent years. Miazek, at 21, is not exactly young either. He may be getting signed up just to play for the Under-23s with no view to him playing for the senior squad in the future. That again quashes any chances that a young English ‘keeper may have to impress.
