Pawel Cibicki’s loan deal coming to an end, do Leeds United give him a chance?

The Swede has just three more games to play for Norwegian side Molde.

In July, Leeds United signed off on the loan exit of Swedish forward Pawel Cibicki. The Whites snapped up the Sweden international from Malmo in August 2017. His time at Elland Road has not been successful. Last season he featured just 10 times for Leeds and the forward failed to find the net.

With that mind, he was sent to work with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team in Norway.

That deal is, however, coming to an end.

There are just three games left in the Norwegian top-flight for Molde, who are currently third in the division.

So do Leeds take him back?

 

He has certainly had some moments for the Norwegian side. Cibicki recently scored his third goal for the club, in a 3-1 win over IK Start.

Playing largely from the left-wing, Cibicki has scored three goals and provided four assists in his 16 games for the club. Those figures are certainly not bad but also won’t have Leeds fans calling for an immediate recall.

Molde take on Tromso later today and if Cibicki can have a flurry of form in his final three games at the Aker Stadium then, perhaps, he has a chance of playing regularly at Leeds.

However, with competition in attack fierce and Izzy Brown and Patrick Bamford returning to fitness in January, it is hard to see Cibicki sticking around at Elland Road beyond January.
