Talks have been held between Leeds United striker Pawel Cibicki and Brondby IF over a potential January exit from Elland Road, according to a report.

Danish publication Tipsbladet claim on their website that the Danish side are keen on snapping up attacking reinforcements and have identified Cibicki as a potential target.

It is said that there were crucial talks held over a potential move for the 23-year-old at a hotel in Copenhagen, although the report states that there have been no further communications between the two sides since.

The Swedish attacker was a summer signing for Leeds, arriving from Malmo, but has found playing time difficult to come by at Elland Road.

He has managed to make just three appearances for the Whites, making his Championship debut off the bench in the club’s 3-1 win over Queens Park Rangers in their last outing.

Cibicki has not managed to break into the first team squad under Thomas Christiansen yet, but he did himself no harm with his display against QPR, replacing the injured Caleb Ekuban in the first half. He has a long way to go before establishing himself as a first team star, but has managed to stay in and around the fringes of the senior squad. With Ekuban out injured and the likes of Pierre Michel Lasogga also on the sidelines, these coming weeks are his chance to prove himself. An exit in January seems unlikely considering the situation the Whites find themselves in, which is potentially why talks have stopped with Brondby.
