It looks like Mateusz Klich’s short, unhappy spell at Leeds United might be coming to an end.
won't be a surprise if Mateusz Klich moves abroad on loan now. Further down the order with Forshaw signing. Some foreign interest in him.— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) January 17, 2018
Klich was injured during preseason, and never seemed to take hold of a position in the central midfield for Leeds. He didn’t get very many chances, but his performance against Burnley, where he acquitted himself very well against the Premier League side, was a highlight. Of course, he was picked for the next match against Cardiff City and made an awful mistake that directly lead to a goal against the team, but he wasn’t exactly the only player to look poor against Cardiff.
Klich, for better or worse, got to be known to Leeds fans more for posting things on Twitter than for his play on the pitch. And when he got a rare start against Newport County, he again did himself no favours towards getting himself into the starting rotation. Klich will likely return to The Netherlands or perhaps go back to Poland or Germany. Either way, it appears his time is up at Leeds.
