Leeds United’s goalkeeper improvements are bad news for Will Huffer

Leeds United’s young stopper is also an England youth international.

The goalkeeping situation at Leeds United has been a hot topic in recent months. Poor form from first-team goalies Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan left Bailey Peacock-Farrell in between the sticks at the end of last season.

However, the club is spoilt for choice in the under-23 department. It is reported by Polish outlet Skauci that the club’s young stopper Kamil Miazek is set to sign a new deal at the club this summer.

Then there is the incoming Bulgarian. It was reported by Sportal recently that Dimitar Sheytanov is expected to join Leeds by the end of June.

He will also join up with the under-23s and leave Leeds well stocked in that area.

So what next for a player like Will Huffer?

 

The 19-year-old goalkeeper signed his first professional deal with the club in December. He is highly rated by the club and his country. He has represented England at both under-17 and under-18 level, whilst he is currently a member of the under-20 squad.

But with Leeds bringing in young talent from abroad for direct competition, it is hard to see where Huffer’s pathway to the Leeds first-team is.

The talented stopper has all the tools to become a regular at a high level, but at present Leeds seem determined to stop his progress.

A loan move would make sense in the months to come, as he looks to prove himself of an eventual place in the Leeds first-team.

Hopefully, the arrival of new faces will not deter the teen from making his Leeds dreams come true.
