According to various reports coming out of the Netherlands, Leeds United could potentially secure the signature of Poland international Mateusz Klich.

Dutch media outlet vi.nl have reported that Klich is interested in a move to Elland Road, just a year after he joined Dutch club FC Twente.

Reports earlier suggested that talks were underway to negotiate a new contract for Leeds United boss Garry Monk, and it is believed he could make Klich one of his first signings of the summer.

The 26 year old midfielder moved to the Netherlands from German second tier team FC Kaiserslauten last summer, and featured regularly for the Eredivise side last season, making 29 league appearances.

Klich’s contract does not run out until 2019, but Leeds United are confident of prizing the Polish international away from FC Twente.

He scored six goals during the league season, showing he is a midfielder who can bring goals to his game, something which Leeds have been lacking this season.

Strength in depth could be crucial for Garry Monk’s side this season, and the signing of an experienced central midfielder could go a long way to ensuring that their season is more successful this time round.

Leeds United finished seventh in the Sky Bet Championship this season, five points outside the Play-Off places after a poor finish to the season.

Klich’s experiences extend far beyond club football. He has made 10 appearances for his native Poland, including a substitute appearance in Euro 2016 last summer.
