Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich has endured a rollercoaster week as he left for international duty with Poland.
The Whites mainstay initially tested positive for COVID-19 at the start of his trip, but then returned a negative test as the confusion started to grow.
That confusion grew again on Friday, as the midfielder once again tested positive for the virus and began to officially quarantine.
With Sheffield United the first team to Elland Road after the international break, there have already been questions surrounding Klich’s availability for the Premier League clash.
Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth has shed light on the situation on his personal Twitter account this afternoon.
“Started isolating early enough that he should be absolutely fine for Sheffield United,” he said.

Blessing in disguise?
Klich has been suffering from tiredness and injuries for months now in the Premier League but hasn’t been handed the chance to rest and recover fully.
The 30-year-old was called up once again this week, despite his lack of action and clear discomfort, and that was dreadful news for Leeds who would have wanted him left out.
Although testing positive isn’t great news, Klich has no symptoms.
This could him the next two weeks to fully recover his body and mind; which could unleash a new version of himself for the final stretch of this season.
Marcelo Bielsa has a lot of trust in Klich and has used him frequently during his three years at Elland Road, which makes these absences even stranger.
We hope that this break will see Klich return to his best; watch out Sheffield United.
