Leeds striker Pawel Cibicki looks like he might be set to leave Elland Road after he was spotted with his agent at last night’s Legia Warsaw game.
The 24-year-old striker, who hasn’t featured under new manager Paul Heckingbottom, has Polish parents and could be set for a move to Warsaw after his Elland Road adventure hasn’t worked out.
Phil Hay, from the Yorkshire Evening Post, confirmed that he is one of the players that Leeds want to move on in the summer, and reported on the player’s shock appearance with his agent at the game last night.

Cibicki didn’t score a goal for Leeds after his £1.4million move from Swedish side Malmo, but fans don’t think he was given a chance.
One fan said that it was “mental” how he was being moved on without being played and added that recruitment specialist Victor Orta was “ruining careers”.
Another said that he thought Cibicki looked really good when he came on – the striker was only afforded five starts.
Not everyone agreed though, with one fan calling Cibicki “utter tripe”.
Here are the best reactions to the development:
Mental. Never given a proper chance. We are getting shown again and again, just how shit Orta’s judgement is. Ruining careers is that man

I personally thought Cibicki looked really good when he was playing

I liked him. Had a good 2/3 games when he got the chance then got taken out and never put back in.

Still can't fathom how we went from Wood to Ekuban, Grot and Cibicki. To even think that at the start of the season that these were all some bargain buys part of an Orta master plan. Sigh.

Great, what a bloody waste that was, for him and us. Let's hope he is the first of 10-15

About time we started bringing in players who can actually cut it, no suprises about Cibicki at all, utter tripe ! Hopefully more follow suit and hopefully we start to learn from these mistakes !! Can’t keep bringing in average players or in Grots case less than average players!

Shame, appeared to have huge potential prior to joining Leeds but it just didn’t work.

Oh ???? really liked the guy. Thought he did well the games he played. His crosses were pin point and his set pieces were almost perfect.
