Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich has signed a new four-and-a-half year contract with the club.
The deal, which runs until the summer of 2024, is no surprise given the reliance Leeds have had on him since Marcelo Bielsa arrived as manager in 2018.

After a tough first season under Thomas Christiansen, with only nine first team appearances before being shipped out on loan to FC Twente, Klich has made himself indispensible.
The Poland international has started every league game under the former Argentina and Chile manager since he took over and has now scored 12 goals for the club in 75 appearances. His return of 10 goals and nine assists last season was particularly impressive, and while this has dropped this year his passing and chance creation stats have been excellent.
Worth pointing out Mateusz Klich has played 78 matches for club and country since the start of last season. Approaching 6,200 minutes of football played. Phenomenal engine. #LUFC #MOT https://t.co/NocKpvnB69— LUFCDATA (@LUFCDATA) November 6, 2019
Klich is the latest of a group of first team players to renew their ties to the club, following the renewals of Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Stuart Dallas and Kalvin Phillips.
