January exit on the cards for Leeds fringe player after being blasted by fans on Twitter - report
Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich could exit Elland Road in January, according to a report.
Polish news outlet Prezeglad Sportowy claims that a move is on the cards for Klich, 27, in the upcoming transfer window to potentially make a return to the Netherlands.
Klich has been unable to get a firm grasp on first-team football since joining Leeds in the summer from Dutch outfit FC Twente, with the fringe player making just eight appearances across all competitions and earning just one start in the Championship.
Thomas Christiansen has seemingly preferred to utilise Kalvin Phillips, Eunan O’Kane and Ronaldo Vieira in the position that Klich is natural in.
The Poland international took to Twitter last week to post a cryptic tweet that suggested he wasn’t very happy with his situation at Elland Road.

Football Insider Verdict
Leeds signed a lot of players in the summer and it was expected that at least one or two of them would fail to get much first-team football. Unfortunately for Klich he was one of the unlucky bunch to not get a chance but with O’Kane, Phillips and Vieira all looking decent this season, it would be hard to justify his inclusion. Christiansen has a very big squad on his hands and keeping everyone happy would certainly be a challenge. His squad is also quite unbalanced with a lot of depth in attacking areas and not a lot in defence. The manager needs to focus on padding out his backline in January and moving Klich on could free up some funds.
