There is interest from Major League Soccer sides in Leeds United forward Pawel Cibicki, according to the Yorkshire Post.

The Whites are looking to offload the 24-year-old in the January transfer window and are prepared to listen to offers for him.

Cibicki has spent the first half of this season on loan at Norwegian Eliteserian side Molde, who are managed by former Manchester United striker Ole Gunner Solskjaer. He has played 18 games for them, scoring three goals.

The Swedish forward was shipped was out on loan over the summer after Marcelo Bielsa decided he was not part of his first-team plans. He is now looking set for a permanent departure from Elland Road despite only being in the second year of the four-year deal he signed when he made the switch to England.

Cibicki could be the next player to swap the Championship for the MLS. We have seen players like Johnny Russell (Derby County to Sporting KS), Nedum Onuoha (QPR to Real Salt Lake) and Adama Diomande (Hull City to Los Angeles FC) make the move across the pond in the past year or so.

Cibicki, who has represented Sweden at Under-21 level, has not had a pleasant time in England and only played 10 games for Leeds last season and failed to score. The Whites apparently paid a fee in the region of £1.5 million for him.

He had previously played for Malmo in his native Sweden. Cibicki’s next move looks to be to America which will raise some eyebrows.
