Championship outfit Leeds United have carved a magnificent start to their league campaign under the tutelage of Thomas Christiansen. The Whites have hit the ground up and running from the very beginning and appear to be a side capable of earning a promotion to the English top flight. In their 8 Championship outing so far, Christiansen’s men have collected as many as 17 points and are placed at the top of the league table.
It has been very intriguing to see the manner in which Leeds United have perfectly made use of the pedestal which was created during Garry Monk’s regime.
The Yorkshire based club came very close to achieving promotion last season but owing to their dismal run of form during the business end of the season, they withered away and failed to get the anticipated output. Nonetheless, they have looked like a much polished and sharper side this time around.
Christiansen made some shrewd acquisitions over the course of the summer transfer window, such as Samu Saiz, Ezgjan Alioski, Mateusz Klich to name a few, apart from the two quality goalkeepers in the shapes of Felix Wiedwald from Werder Bremen and Andy Lonergan from Wolverhampton Wanderers in order to beef up their arsenal.
However, Leeds United’s scout Jakub Boklej has revealed on his personal Twitter account that Polish goalkeeper Kamil Miazek on trial with both the senior and Under-23 squads.
Although the deadline window has shut, clubs are still authorized to sign free agents and the Peacocks are perceived to take one on trial. Miazek is currently without a club after leaving the Polish second division side Chojniczanka Chojnice and the former Feyenoord stopper is an admirer of Juventus’ goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.
Leeds United do have the requisite depth as far as their goalkeeping position is concerned and if someone like Miazek is introduced at the Elland Road, the competition would enhance further.
Although the 21-year-old has barely played any senior football in his short career, he has the potential to make a mark for himself in the near future.
With Wiedwald being the first-choice goalkeeper, Lonergan’s performance in the Carabao Cup was stupendous. Besides, the highly-rated pair of Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Will Huffer is also at the disposal of Christiansen. Leeds United have an illustrious history of giving the youngsters the platform to thrive and no wonder why a move to their ranks would be a decent step for Miazek.
