Leeds United are set to offer a new contract to their Polish midfielder Mateusz Klich, according to a report from Football Insider.
The 29-year-old has been at Elland Road since 2017, but his current deal is set to expire at the end of the 2019/20 season.
It is reported by Football Insider that the Pole will receive a significantly better wage than the one he is currently earning. The club hope that a new contract will fend off any Premier League interest in January after Burnley were reportedly keen on Klich in the summer.
Should it be finalised, it means that the former FC Twente man would become the fifth player within the last few weeks to sign a new deal with Leeds.
It shows that Marcelo Bielsa is keen to tie down his most important players as they bid to win promotion to the Premier League this season and this would certainly be a good bit of business for the Whites.
He has transformed himself under Bielsa. Under previous manager Thomas Christiansen, he managed just one league start before being loaned out to Utrecht, but in the last two seasons he has not only been a regular starter but has also offered a threat from midfield, scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists last term.
The Polish international looks like someone who could step up to the Premier League if they gain promotion, so it makes sense for the West Yorkshire club to tie him down long-term.
Leeds fans, would you like to see Mateusz Klich agree a new deal with the club? Let us know in the comments below…
