Leeds United midfielder Bobby Kamwa is currently on trial with Rotherham, as reported by Paul Davis of the Rotherham Observer on Twitter.
Davis’ tweet stated that Leeds’ academy graduate has another two days to impress, after a conversation with The Millers’ assistant manager Richie Barker.
The 21-year-old has not featured for the Premier League club’s first team as of yet and is approaching the final year of his contract. The Cameroon-born midfielder signed a two-year contract extension in June 2020, but whether Leeds are open to selling remains to be seen.
Kamwa has progressed through the ranks at Elland Road and scored twice in 11 games for Leeds’ U23’s last season in Premier League 2.
Paul Warne’s Rotherham have seen little business conducted thus far this summer, with former Millwall left-sided player Shane Ferguson signing for the club in probably the most high-profile addition.
Paul Warne must secure some more signings ahead of the upcoming season. One key arrival for a club who are looking to bounce back to the second-tier is not what Warne would have wanted at this stage of the transfer window.
Rotherham could also still lose a few players this summer, placing even more emphasis on increasing the number of arrivals.
Kamwa could be an exciting addition to bolster Rotherham’s midfield options for next season. However, it is a risk given his lack of first-team football. He does possess plenty of potential though, and he will be hoping to impress enough to earn himself a move.
The return of Lewis Wing and Matt Crooks’ uncertain future means that the midfield area could be left rather light this summer. Therefore, the signing of a young, promising midfielder like Kamwa will be one step in the right direction.
