Revealed: Leeds colossus heading towards exit after recent Glasgow Rangers offer
Demoted goalkeeper Kamil Miazek is heading towards the Leeds United exit as he enters the final months of his contract, Football Insider has learned.
The giant Pole was the subject of strong Rangers interest in January but remained at Elland Road to see out a deal that expires in the summer.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider that the club are preparing to lose Miazek, 23, after making him available at the end of the January window.
Rangers held discussions with him, including about a contract offer, but terms could not be agreed.
However, Miazek has slipped down the pecking order in Marcelo Bielsa’s squad and is now fourth choice keeper behind undisputed number one Kiko Casilla, his deputy Illan Meslier and January signing Elia Caprile.
Casilla’s eight-match ban has opened the door for Meslier to be given his first extended run in goal, and it was telling that Caprile was selected on the bench to back him up for Saturday’s 4-0 demolition of Hull City.

Football Insider revealed in January that Leeds would listen to offers for Miazek and, barring a change of heart, he is likely to leave.

United have the option to extend the Poland youth international’s contract by 12 months but it is unlikely he would want to stay and be fourth choice now he is entering his mid-20s.
Miazek, who has continued to play for the Under-23s, has yet to play for the Leeds first team although he was on the bench for seven Championship matches earlier in the campaign.
