One name that many Leeds fans would be forgiven for largely forgetting about is Pawel Cibicki. The forward was arguably one of the less impressive signings from a very poor summer window in 2017.

In fairness to Cibicki, he was not given many chances to prove himself. And there were moments of quality. His performance away at QPR was good enough to steal some of the spotlight from hat-trick hero Kemar Roofe.

Nevertheless, the only surprise about his summer move was that Leeds only managed to loan him out to Molde rather than sell him on.

But with the Norwegian season now over, Cibicki is on his way back to Elland Road and could potentially be available to Marcelo Bielsa in January.

So could the forward actually resurrect his Leeds career upon his return?

 

The likely answer is no. Cibicki performed well with Molde. But the 24-year-old certainly did not do enough to make a major statement to Bielsa.

It seems most likely that the Swede will end up leaving again. However, perhaps the door should not shut on his Whites career just yet.

If Cibicki remains at Leeds beyond January, he surely has an outside chance of forcing his way back into the picture, especially when you consider the number of injuries that Bielsa has already had to deal with.

Mateusz Klich has shown how wrong it can sometimes be to write players off. Cibicki needs to do remarkably well to get back into the picture at Elland Road, but if he is still at the club after January, then perhaps he can still surprise a lot of people.
