Leeds United goalkeepers Kamil Miazek and Will Huffer don’t appear to have “much of a future at the club”, according to Leeds Live journalist Joe Mewis.
According to a piece from the local outlet’s Whites editor, the duo, who are 23 and 21 respectively, are now considered to be fourth and fifth in the pecking order between the sticks at Elland Road.
Neither player has featured for Marcelo Bielsa’s first team this season, and it is understood that both are facing possible exits in the coming months.
Discussing the goalkeeping situation at the club, Mewis said: “Kiko Casilla was the undisputed number one for the majority of the season, but his eight-match ban has put a question mark over his long-term future with the club, as did a series of errors during Leeds’ post-Christmas dip in form.
“Illan Meslier had a quiet first two Championship starts before the layoff, racking up consecutive clean sheets and it is expected that the club will make his loan move permanent in the summer.
“Elia Caprille is one for the future, while Kamil Miazek does not appear to have much of a future at the club, as is the case with another youngster Will Huffer.”
This probably isn’t too much of a shock, truth be told.
By no means is 21 – or 23 for that matter – old for a goalkeeper, but the fact that both Huffer and Miazek are so far away from the first team picture would seemingly suggest that they will have to look elsewhere to make their breakthrough into senior action.
With a deal for Illan Meslier expected to be wrapped up this summer, and with Elia Caprile only arriving in January, it’s felt as if the writing has been on the while for quite some time for Bielsa’s other young goalkeepers.
Mewis’ update seemingly confirms what we already could have probably guessed.
