Speaking to Swedish news outlet Fotbollskanalen, Elfsborg manager Jimmy Thelin has left the door open to a possible return move for Leeds United fringe man Pawel Cibicki, who is highly likely to make a move away from the Championship club this summer.

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa is wasting no time in clearing out the deadwood from his squad ahead of the new season, with a number of young players heading for the exit doors at Elland Road. The likes of Vurnon Anita, Hadi Sacko and Caleb Ekuban are also reportedly close to also making moves away from the club.

And, one more fringe player set to make a move away from the club is Pawel Cibicki. He was sent back to Sweden on loan upon the arrival of Bielsa last summer, joining Allsvenskan side Elfsborg for the 2018/19 season. And now, Elfsborg boss Jimmy Thelin has hinted that the door is open for the Swede to make a return to the club this summer.

“We have borrowed him until now and we will see what happens in the future. 

“He has been very important to us and contributes with threats to the opponent that they must keep track of. He creates a lot of chances for us, so he is very important. 

“Right now, he is a Leeds player, so we will see what happens next.”

It awaits to be seen if the Swedish side make a move to bring Cibicki back this summer and bring an end to his underwhelming time with Leeds United.
