Leeds United youngster Mateusz Bogusz has admitted that he would like to leave the club on loan this summer.
The 19-year-old has struggled to break into Marcelo Bielsa’s first team plans in recent times, and was limited to just 107 minutes of senior action last term, with just 17 of those coming in the Championship.
The midfielder is currently away on international duty with Poland’s U21s setup, and he has delivered a frank appraisal of his future during an interview in his home country.
Speaking to TVP Sport, he said: “Here with the national team, I was able to play nice matches.
“I missed playing lately because at Leeds, I was mostly playing for the U23 team. I enjoy playing here. I hope it will continue like this.
“I’m still waiting. I hope I’ll be loaned out. I’d like to play in a more serious league every week because I miss ‘normal’ matches.
“Talks are still ongoing. I don’t want to tell you what the directions are, but there are several options.”
There are really two ways of looking at this.
On the one hand, it’s disappointing to hear a player state so openly that he wants to leave Elland Road, especially one with the promise that Bogusz boasts.
But on the other, it’s reassuring to see that he is only seeking a loan deal.
In the past, we’ve seen Bogusz linked with a permanent move to Napoli, and whereas that feels like it would be a real blow, sending him out for a temporary stint at a club where he could gain regular senior minutes seems like the sort of plan that would be beneficial for everybody involved.
