Another Leeds departure confirmed. Pawel Cibicki joins Pogon Szczecin.

Good to have him off the wage bill.

Burnley v Leeds United - Carabao Cup Third Round

Pogon Szczecin have confirmed the signing of Leeds United winger Pawel Cibicki on a three-and-a-half year deal.

The Ekstraklasa club have completed the deal, following an unsuccessful loan spell in Holland with ADO Den Haag (now managed by Alan Pardew).

Cibicki played 10 times for Sweden at U21 level, but before that represented Poland at U19 and U20 level as his parents were born there - so he is likely to be comfortable with his new surroundings.

Cibicki only had six months left on his contract at Elland Road so the fee is likely to be nominal, if there is one at all.

Having joined in the summer of 2017, Cibicki had to wait a few months for his debut in a Leeds shirt. His debut came away at Queens Park Rangers, replacing Ghana international Caleb Ekuban, and getting an assist for one of Kemar Roofe’s goals as the now-Anderlecht player scored a hat-trick in a 3-1 win. He also claimed an assist in his second appearance, setting up his countryman and former Malmo teammate Pontus Jansson for the only goal in a 1-0 win over Norwich City.

Following his impressive start he would make another eight appearances for Leeds, but they were unimpressive and he drifted away from the first team squad, never appearing under Marcelo Bielsa.
