Birmingham City youngster Amari Miller is edging closer to a move to Leeds United after he didn’t join the Blues squad for their pre-season trip to Scotland.
Amari Miller not part of Birmingham's #BCFC pre-season trip to Scotland, ahead of move to #LUFC Leeds. Spurs, Everton and Southampton have been tracking teenage striker who broke into 1st team last season ⚽

The 18-year-old is highly-rated at St. Andrew’s and he even managed to force his way into the first-team towards the end of the previous campaign.
However, with his contract expiring in the summer, there were always fears that Miller would move on, even though Blues had tried to come to an agreement with the teenager.
But, Telegraph reporter Mike McGrath confirmed that Miller didn’t link up with Lee Bowyer’s squad, indicating that a move to Elland Road could be imminent.
Can you name the Birmingham City player who has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
As you would expect, that got the fans talking, and the reaction to the news wasn’t great, with the support hoping that Miller would’ve stuck around and seen a pathway to the first-team at Birmingham.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the news from Twitter…
Whatever happens for this lad in the future then good luck ..

Not in Bellingham's league. Promising, but no sign of realising that potential as yet. Will end up in Leeds' U23s or on loan to a L1 / L2 club. A long way to go for him before he's a regular senior level player.

I wonder who leaked the news about Miller to press – esp insides of deal to @footyinsider247. Blues trying to create a bidding war?
Miller’s agent/family? Doubt it.

I just can't see him being prem ready.
Will either shine or be left on the bench. 🤷♀️ https://t.co/HMxYIHVmkA
