Leeds United have confirmed that Pawel Cibicki has left the club on loan to join Elfsborg until the end of the season.

The Whites revealed via their official Twitter account that the 25-year-old had agreed terms with the Swedish side, having spent the first half of the season out on loan with Molde where he was a regular for their first team.

Cibicki, a 2017 signing for the club, has only made 10 appearances across all competitions during his time at Elland Road failing to score and with just two assists to his name.

Opinion

It is quite clear that Cibicki has no future at Elland Road and so sending him to Elfsborg after his time at Molde makes perfect sense. It would be no surprise to see him have some sort of purchase agreement included in his loan terms for he needs to find a way out of Leeds for the good of his career. His form at Molde was nothing exceptional so it is lucky Leeds have managed to find a club willing to take him on until the end of the season. He will likely not be the only player to be leaving who was signed during the 2017 summer window, with Victor Orta having something of a shocker, especially when it came to attackers. Caleb Ekuban and Jay-Roy Grot are just another pair currently away from the club who have to do something special to earn a place among the first team ever again and it would be no surprise to see all three sold not long after the end of the current campaign.
