Mateusz Klich was one of a varied set of signings by Leeds United last summer.
Unable to find his way into the team, the midfielder, who had arrived from FC Twente, returned to Dutch football on loan with FC Utrecht.
In comparison to some other loan deals (cough, Cultural, cough) it’s been a runaway success. Klich has got a bunch of games, been an important player, gone through a confidence rebuild, and has a smile on his face.
One may think that given he’s enjoying football so much away from Elland Road, the Polish footballer wouldn’t be talking up a return to Yorkshire, but it’s quite the opposite.
After scoring the only goal of the game against VVV Venlo at the weekend, Klich spoke to Dutch newspaper AD.
Asked about returning to the Championship club, the 27 year old made things absolutely clear: “I have spoken with them, they want me back.
“The chance that I return is 99 percent, almost a hundred. I still have a two year contract. I have unfinished business there.”
That sounds like really good news for Leeds United.
Klich has been in good form, and he’s keen to return.
