Birmingham do not want to lose Miller and confirmed last month that he was one of five second-year scholars to be offered professional terms.
He will not leave St Andrews for free as Leeds will need to pay a compensation fee to Birmingham for development costs.
Lee Bowyer fast-tracked the teenager into the City first team in the final weeks of last season even though they were locked in a relegation battle.
Miller made five appearances in April and May, including consecutive starts in wide attacking roles against Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers.
Miller can play down the middle as a central striker as well as out wide.
His main assets are said by those who have watched him closely to be his blistering pace, sharp movement and increasingly impressive finishing.
