Gerrard turns to Leeds as Rangers goalkeeper hunt hits snag

Date published: Tuesday 28th January 2020 4:54

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is interested in a move for Leeds United goalkeeper Kamil Miazek this month, according to reports.

Miazek joined up with Leeds’ Under-23s side in October 2017, ending a spell of free agency, but the Poland Under-21 international is yet to make the step up to the Whites‘ senior team.

Indeed, Kiko Casilla remains Marcelo Bielsa‘s number one choice between the sticks and Illan Meslier, on loan from Lorient, has the option to make his move permanent in the summer.

According to Goal, Gerrard has been on the hunt for a new goalkeeper for some time and has now identified Miazek as a prime target after seeing other potential deals fall through.

The Gers were hoping to bring in Legia Warsaw stopper Radoslaw Majecki, but he is Monaco-bound after the French side won the race for his signature.

The source states that Miazek, 23, is free to negotiate with other clubs due to there being less than six months left on his current deal at Elland Road.

 

 

It is claimed that Rangers are to open talks with the goalkeeper in a bid to guarantee him more game time north of the border.

In other news, The Athletic journalist David Ornstein has revealed that Leeds beat Manchester United to the signing of RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin.

Leeds announced the capture of Frenchman Augustin on Monday morning in a deal which could be made permanent in the summer.

However, United also made a late bid, with Ornstein writing on Twitter: “Man Utd made late enquiry for Augustin but Leeds move too advanced/impressive.”
