Leeds United forward Pawel Cibicki has told the Swedish media it was necessary to go out on loan for next season because he needs to start getting games.

Last month it was confirmed the Swede had joined Norwegian side Molde on loan for the season.

Speaking to Sydsvenskan whilst attending Malmo’s clash with Östersund last weekend, the Leeds United player was asked why he decided to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in Norway: “I have to play, it was necessary to do something.”

Cibicki signed for Leeds United from Malmo last summer, but he struggled to hold a place down in the team. This led to claims during the last January transfer window that Danish side Brondby were interested in the young Swede and had held talks with his agent in Copenhagen.

The attacker did put a run of games together during the winter period, mainly due to injuries, but finished the season playing just a handful of games.

Recently Cibicki said he still hopes to have a future at Leeds United when he returns to Elland Road next summer.
