Sources: Bielsa grants Leeds midfielder his wish to leave this season
Mateusz Bogusz has been given permission by Leeds United to go out on loan for this season, Football Insider has learned.
The midfielder, 19, has spoken of his frustration at not being able to break into the Leeds first team and wants senior football.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider that Bogusz has now been told Marcelo Bielsa is willing for him to be loaned out for the 2020-21 campaign.
United are keen for the teenager to get some senior experience and want him to join an EFL club.
He is likely to drop down to League One or League Two ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline.
Leeds have agreed a number of loan deals for the young and emerging players in recent weeks, with defender Byrce Hosannah becoming the latest when he joined League Two outfit Bradford City earlier this week.

Bogusz, who turned 19 in August, has made it clear he does not want another season in the Under-23s.
“Talks are still going on. I get along. I do not want to confuse what these directions are, but there are several options.”
The Poland Under-21 international is a versatile midfielder who can operate in central or more attacking positions.
He was named in the Leeds Under-23s side that today defeated Middlesbrough 1-0 through a Sam Greenwood goal.
The Polish teenager arrived at United in January of last year, when he signed on a two-and-a-half year deal from Ruch Chorzow in his homeland.
He initially impressed for the club’s age-group sides and then broke into the senior squad.
Bogusz has made a total of three first-team appearances, including a 78-minute run-out in the EFL Cup defeat to Hull City last month.
