Blues Teen Miller Makes Switch To Premier League Leeds

Leeds United have completed the signing of Birmingham City starlet Amari Miller, who penned a four-year professional contract after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

The 18-year-old winger was introduced into the Blues’ first team towards the end of the 2020/21 season, making his Sky Bet Championship debut in April during the latter stages of a 2-0 victory over Stoke City.

Two more substitute appearances followed before Miller completed the campaign with back-to-back starts against Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers.

“It’s a great feeling, not just for myself but for my family,” Miller told the club website. “The minute I heard Leeds United were interested, I knew what a massive club it was and it was too big to turn down. My family, friends and everyone who knew about it have just been brilliant.

“I feel like I must thank Birmingham City so much, because I have been there since the age of 10. It has been the place where I have learned the most, I couldn’t have asked them for any more; they gave me everything I needed to get to this stage and help me progress. They’ve helped me to get a club like Leeds United to come in for me and I am thankful to be given such a good foundation from them.

“As soon as I spoke to Victor Orta and the club, I said to my agent that this was the one. It’s a massive club with great fans. I have had loads of fans messaging me already and I feel like it’s a huge club for me. 

“As a winger, I can see Leeds get a lot of one-v-one chances which is something I really back myself in. They play quickly and at a high tempo, they press high up the pitch and train with such a high intensity, which is unbelievable. I would say I am skilful, good at finishing and composed. Even coming from outside of Leeds, it’s amazing to see yourself at such a club like this.” 

Miller will initially link up with Mark Jackson’s Under-23 side, who will feature in Premier League 2 Division 1 in the upcoming campaign after winning promotion last season.
