Kamil Jozwiak is a name Leeds United fans will soon be familar with.
Digging in the Polish media to see if Mateusz Klich has any snippets of wisdom about his difficult Leeds United season so far, Sport Witness stumbled upon something rather more interesting.
Jozwiak is a 19 year old right footed winger, capable on either flank, and with a Lech Poznan contract expiring in June.
Gazeta Wyborcza report Jozwiak ‘has an offer from Leeds United but Lech Poznan don’t agree to the transfer’.
Leeds United ‘have long been interested’ in the player, according to the claims, and want to get him in the winter, ahead of his contract expiring, but Lech Poznan aren’t happy about it.
Jozwiak is determined to leave, but his current club feel the player’s representatives are carrying out business without permission, and actively trying to find a destination. Renewal talks have broken down, and an exit looks likely, whenever that may be.
Leeds United have offered €200k, report Sport.pl, plus a percentage of a future sale.
Lech Poznan’s president Karol Klimczak has spoken about the offer: “I can confirm that we have this option, but I firmly believe that we’re not interested in parting with Kamil in the winter. We don’t think we are ready for his departure… If the player makes the final decision and doesn’t want to extend the contract, then he’ll leave the club in the summer.”
Sport.pl state Jozwiak, who only has 19 league appearances so far, has wanted guaranteed playing time to be written into a new contract, and Lech Poznan won’t agree to this. They question whether the 19 year old would stand a better chance of football at Elland Road, suggesting they believe he wouldn’t.
The €200k offer from Leeds United ‘doesn’t impress anyone in Poznan’ according to the claims.
Both sides are blaming each other, with the player’s camp saying they just want playing time, and the club unhappy with how they’re being pressured.
Without peace breaking out, it’s thought Jozwiak will leave when his contract ends, maybe because the Leeds United offer isn’t enough to stop Lech Poznan gambling that the player will eventually renew.
