Marcelo Bielsa keen to offload Pawel Cibicki in January

Marcelo Bielsa keen to offload Pawel Cibicki in January

Marcelo Bielsa has not been shy of getting rid of a number of players since joining Leeds United as their manager in the summer.

The Argentine oversaw a mass exodus in the summer, and although it is unlikely the winter will prove the same, it appears he will still look to clear some players off the books.

One man that could be set for the exit is Pawel Cibicki if reports by the Yorkshire Evening Post are to be believed.

The Swedish forward was signed by Thomas Christiansen for £1.4million in August 2017, per Transfermarkt, however, he failed to make a real impact at Elland Road.

The 24-year-old has just returned from a loan spell with Molde in Norway, however, it appears that Bielsa appears to have deemed him surplus to requirements.

It is understood there is some interest in him from the MLS, so Leeds will look to try and use that to offload him in January permanently.

The Verdict:

Cibicki clearly did not make an impression during his spell in Norway with Molde for Bielsa to give him another chance.

The Argentine has appeared to be rather ruthless when it comes to offloading the players he does not want at the club.

Although an asking price has not been detailed, Leeds will likely want to get the 24-year-old off the club’s wage-bill as quickly as possible.
