Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to rage after it was confirmed that Mateusz Klich has left Elland Road on loan to sign for FC Utrecht.
The Yorkshire club confirmed on their official Twitter account on Monday that Klich, 27, had agreed terms to move back to the Eredivisie on a temporary basis after barely making an impact at Elland Road following his switch from FC Twente in the summer.
???? | Leeds United can confirm that midfielder Mateusz Klich has joined Eredivisie side FC Utrecht on a six month loan deal

Klich had made just 10 appearances in all competitions for Leeds, despite being one of Thomas Christiansen’s first signings since replacing Garry Monk in charge of the club.
The Poland international had made just one Championship outing since September and it seems that his lack of game time has played a major role in him leaving the Whites on loan.
Leeds fans on Twitter were not too pleased to see him leaving, especially with the number of injuries and suspension issues plaguing the first-team squad at the moment.
One disgruntled supporter claimed it was a “waste of time” in signing the Polish midfielder to not play him.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
What a waste of time that was!!

We all know Klich won’t play for us again so why not sell him and re-invest the money? Why loan him when our midfield is decimated. Stupid again!

Well this whole Klich thing is strange. Very strange.

Another waste that, either sell him or get him English football. Stupid that one, he won't play for Leeds again so

Klich is the second midfielder to leave Elland Road on loan this month, following Yosuke Ideguchi, who was snapped up by United and then farmed out to Cultural Leonesa in Spain.
In other Leeds United news, a £7million bid is being prepared for this 24-year-old centre-forward wanted by the Whites.
