When Mateusz Klich signed in the summer, many fans believed that Leeds had finally found their chosen one.
A midfielder who could not only move the ball and keep the attacking tempo, but a strong and stable man, who was able to battle it out in the Championship.
Unfortunately, the former Wolfsburg and F.C. Twente man has been found wanting during his time at Leeds this season and has only mainly featured in the League Cup.
The lack of game time can mainly be pin pointed to the emergence of young prospects Kalvin Phillips and Ronaldo Vieira, who have been somewhat unstoppable in the heart of Leeds’ midfield.
Klich is now only six months into a three year deal and is at risk of losing any hoe he had of international honours for his native Poland having not made one League start all season.
The £1.5million man has been linked with a move to Holland according to the YEP, with plenty of clubs interested in taking Klich off Leeds’ hands even if it is a loan.
A temporary loan move could be the perfect way for Leeds to asses whether Klich is a worthy talent over the next six months and will give them time to make a decision before cutting short his remaining two years in the summer if they have to.
Although, any move that should take place would be better placed allowing Klich to stay within the UK to allow him the opportunity to adapt to English football.
Allowing loan spells within the Football League has served Leeds well for foreign players with Marcus Antonsson currently starring in a promotion chasing Blackburn side, surely the same could Klich in to for place for Leeds’ forgotten midfielder?
