Poland international Klich moves from the Holland’s top-flight to the second tier of English football where he will be tasked with helping his new side earn promotion.
The Yorkshire club missed out on a top-six spot by five points last term and they will be hoping to go one better this time around.
Leeds have signed a player that has played in Germany, Holland and Poland during his career, representing clubs such as Cracovia Kraków and Wolfsburg’s reserve side.
During the recently concluded campaign, he played 30 games in all competitions for FC Twente, scoring six goals and supplying four assists from the middle of the park.
As a result of his and his teammate’s performances, Twente finished off the Eredivisie season by securing a top-seven spot.
Nonetheless, ahead of his move to Elland Road, Klich will now face a battle to earn a first-team spot in Leeds’ midfield.
The likes of Ronaldo Vieira, Liam Bridcutt, Eunan O’Kane, Pablo Hernandez and Kalvin Phillips were utilised in the middle of the park by the club’s former manager Garry Monk.
In the latest Leeds transfer news, Andy Couzens believes the club should re-sign this player that left five years ago.
