Leeds United have had a rollercoaster first half of the 2017-18 Championship season, with the Elland Road club possessing ambitions of promotion to the Premier League.

After a blistering start to the campaign, inconsistency hit – but the Whites have got back to winning ways of late.

The Leeds squad under current manager Thomas Christiansen is significantly different to last season, with a host of new players arriving at Elland Road in the summer.

One of the most-exciting new faces on paper was the addition of Mateusz Klich, who signed for the Whites from FC Twente for a reported fee of £1.5 million.

A ten-times capped Poland international, the 27-year-old impressed in a solitary campaign in the Eredivisie in 2016-17.

Klich scored six goals in 29 league games, with his ability on the ball, range of passing and energy clearly winning over the Leeds scouts.

Last season a lack of goals from midfield was an issue for the Yorkshire club and the Polish star was seen as a potential remedy to the issue.

Leeds boss Christiansen has not seen Klich as an important member of his squad, with the summer signing only receiving 110 minutes of Championship action this season and only one start.

Clearly talented and having something to offer the Whites, giving the Poland international more of an opportunity to show what he is capable of during a hectic build-up of fixtures could well be the springboard to fire Leeds into the play-off places.
