Leeds United are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Amari Miller from Birmingham City according to Football Insider, who tend to be a more reliable source when it comes to youth transfers.

The 18-year-old winger made five appearances at the back end of last season, two of which being starts and the others being short cameos. But his potential has attracted the eyes of Leeds and Everton and Miller now has a decision on his hands, with a professional contract on the table at Birmingham.

The Whites’ youth set-up is an incredibly impressive proposition for any player after the Leeds under-23s steamrolled the PL2 Division 2, with the likes of Sam Greenwood, Joe Gelhardt and Crysencio Summerville showing the potential to break out in the next year or so.

Meanwhile, there is still plenty of room for competition as Leeds look to evaluate the likes of Bobby Kamwa and Ian Poveda’s value to the overall squad, especially when considering their age in comparison to the likes of Summerville and Max Dean in the under-18s.
