Leeds have this morning announced that Swedish striker Pawel Sibicki has signed a 4-year-deal with the club, joining from Malmo FF for a fee believed to be just below £2 million. The deal was effectively done last night after pictures emerged of him signing and holding up the number 22 shirt.
The 23-year-old can also play as a left or right sided winger. Cibicki has been linked with the club in recent weeks after a summer where he had also been linked with both Manchester United and Ajax. Players being linked with clubs during a window means little and we know that, after being linked with nearly every striker in England who didn’t play at the weekend. We know little about the forward and it is very much like most of our deals this summer, unknown and a case of wait and see.
Ezgjan Alioski, Samu Saiz, Caleb Ekuban, Felix Wiedwald, Mateusz Klich, all players that most of us hadn’t heard of this summer yet all players who have impressed in their early Leeds careers. Cibicki is another, but Victor Orta has proved to be extremely useful with his dealings so far, and another example of that is the development side of things. After the deal that saw Chris Wood depart for £15 million you can be excused for being underwhelmed but you have to give the player a chance to prove himself now. Pierre-Michel Lasogga is also expected to be confirmed today ahead of the transfer deadline looming.
