Polish GK Miazek On Trial at Leeds United

You can’t have enough goalkeepers, can you?

The deadline window has shut but Leeds United have continued to search for players that can impact the club. You can still sign free agents, and today the Whites are taking one on for a trial.

According to his agent and the agency, Leeds United have 21-year-old GK Kamil Miazek in for a trail with the club. From 2012-'16, Miazek played in various levels for Feyenoord. He was playing for Polish club Chojiczanka Chojnice, but left after reportedly being on trial with Barnsley. From my best understanding, Barnsley are still interested in signing the Pole, but interest from the Whites has stopped any sort of move.

From the tweet, he's on trail with both the 1st team and the u23s. I have no idea how that's possible, but it sounds like there's a plan in store for Kamil Miazek at Leeds. This is purely a future move. Felix Wiedwald has been great thus far, and Andy Lonergan more than held his own against a rotated Burnley side. There isn't a need for starting or backup goalies. Bringing in Miazek puts pressure on Bailey Peacock-Farrell. It could even enable the Northern Ireland International to go out on loan in January, something the club wanted to have happen before the season started.

Is signing Kamil Miazek important in YOUR eyes, or a unnecessary move and we should stick with BPF? Let me know in the comments or on twitter @ThruItAllLUFC. MOT
