Championship side Leeds United are set to sign Polish goalkeeper Kamil Miazek on a free transfer, as per a report by the Daily Express.

The Whites have apparently offered a contract to the 21 year-old shot-stopper who has been on trial with the club. He was named in the U23 squad for their game against Burnley on Monday night, which suggests a deal is all but done.

Miazek used to play for Dutch giants Feyernoord but has been looking for a club since leaving them. He has also been on trial with Yorkshire rivals Barnsley in the summer. He has also played for Poland at U19 level.

Leeds do have a lot of depth in the goalkeeper position with new signings Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan. They also have the highly-rated Bailley Peacock-Farrell as their third choice. It appears the signing of Miazek would add to an already strong position.

Thomas Christiansen was a busy man in the summer bringing new faces to Elland Road. He managed to bring in the likes of Ezgjan Alioski, Samuel Siaz and Pierre Michel-Lassoga who have all impressed their fans so far. Since joining in the summer, Christiansen has adapted well to life in England.

Leeds are currently 4th in the Championship and have Reading at home on Saturday. It is set to be seen what Miazek’s role will be at Leeds but it is unlikely he will be called upon in the 18 man-squad for the first-team unless injuries hit. He will no doubt be involved with the U23s though.
