Leeds United have welcomed Polish goalkeeper Kamil Miazek to the club on a trial with both the senior and Under-23 squads, according to an academy scout at Elland Road.

Jakub Bokiej has revealed on his personal Twitter account that Miazek, 21, is with the Whites after they hijacked their Yorkshire rivals Barnsley’s efforts to welcome him to English football.

It is understood that Barnsley were keen on the ‘keeper who is contracted at Polish second-tier side Chojniczanka Chojnice, but Leeds swooped in to take him on trial as well.

Bokiej is a scout that has previously revealed that Mateusz Klich was on the verge of signing for Leeds just before the deal was confirmed.

European goalkeeper Miazek was on the books at Dutch giants Feyenoord between 2012 and 2016 but failed to make a single appearance in the senior squad.

The Poland Under-19 international has made just four appearances for Chojniczanka since he signed for them last year, conceding nine goals and keeping one clean sheet in the process.

Football Insider Verdict

Leeds have made drastic changes to their Under-23 squad since Victor Orta came in as director of football and while it is exciting to see all this European talent arrive at Elland Road, it will start to hamper the club’s efforts to produce young English talent in the future. It’s good to have a mix of cultures in the squad, but Leeds have a history of welcoming exciting domestic players to the game and that may start to peter out if this transfer policy continues. Miazek has barely played any senior football in his short career and it is perhaps unlikely he will make much of an impact at Elland Road.
