Radio and television commentators could be in for a tongue twister if, as expected, Leeds agree a loan deal with Arsenal for goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to replace Casper Ankergren.

The 6ft 5in Pole, who has won one full cap for his country, spent last season at Brentford and caught United manager Simon Grayson’s eye when he defied Leeds almost single-handedly.

Szczesny, 20, made his Arsenal debut last September, keeping a clean sheet in a League Cup match against West Brom.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger sees him as their future No 1 and is keen that his next loan period should be at a higher level.

Brentford boss Andy Scott thinks Szczesny is ready to move up.

“His performances suggest that he would not be out of place in the Championship, or even the Premier League,” said Scott.

“It has reached the stage where, when he lets in a goal, we wonder why he hasn’t saved it.”
