Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Bogusz has discussed the options he had prior to his loan agreement with Logrones at the end of the European transfer window.
The Polish youth international signed a new deal with the Yorkshire side earlier this season but, with the Premier League offering a challenging time for Marcelo Bielsa’s team, the fringe player was deemed available for loan.
His exit to Spanish lower league side Logrones is likely to hand him ample playing time as he looks to gain experience of regular football.
Valued at £90,000 by Transfermarkt, the young Polish talent has now spoken about his exit from Leeds and revealed that he had six offers from which to select his next club.
Poland, Italy and England offers for Bogusz
Speaking to Logrones’ official website, Bogusz replied to the question ‘How was your signing?’, saying: “Stressful! It was my first real experience of closing the market and I was calling my agent the whole time, asking him where he was going and when.
“On the very morning of the last market day I had 5-6 offers from Poland, Italy, England… And I wasn’t sure where I was going to go. In the end we all thought that Spain was the best place for me.”
Further to his comments, Bogusz revealed that Leeds manager Bielsa handed him some advice upon his exit.
“I think it was the option he preferred the most. At Leeds we play the Spanish style, we like to maintain possession of the ball and play with an attractive style that excites the fans, high pace … Bielsa is a top coach and I have learned a lot from him, but I feel like it’s time to play more matches.”
Does Bogusz have a chance of playing for Leeds’ first team regularly?
Looking at this move from the outside, you would probably have to feel that Logrones is hardly the place for Bogusz to gain enough experience and competitiveness to potentially come back and impress in the Premier League.
Bielsa has an abundance of talent in his midfield and the Argentine is still keen to bring in some new faces, having failed with a move for Michael Cuisance but also continuing to be linked with a move for Todd Cantwell.
The Polish under-21 international will return to Leeds next summer but you have to feel that another loan move could be on the cards in 2021.
Do you think Bogusz will become a regular for Leeds in the coming years? Let us know your views in the comments section below…
