Mateusz Klich joined Leeds United from FC Twente in last summer’s transfer window.
The Poland international arrived with a big reputation, but only made four Championship appearances for the club before moving to FC Utrecht on loan.
Klich is now back with the Whites ahead of the 2018-19 Championship season, and will be looking to impress head coach Marcelo Bielsa during pre-season.
The 28-year-old was a part of the Leeds team that drew 1-1 with York City in a friendly on Thursday night, and his performance left a positive impression.
His absence from the squad that took on Forest Green Rovers suggested that Bielsa would not be having a look at Klich this summer.
However, the 6ft midfielder was in action against York, and the Leeds supporters were delighted with his performance in the pre-season clash.
Leeds have been frustrated in their pursuit of a number of players this summer – including Derby County’s Matej Vydra – but Klich looks capable of playing a key role under Bielsa this season.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s fans can be seen below:
Klich and Baker looked good. Pearce and Clarke linked well. Wanted more aggression from Clarke though. Ideguchi tried but is not a winger. First game for these lads though so means nothing really

Klich comfortably the best player on the park tonight.

Klich could be a great addition in the main squad.

Agree mate, Klich Forshaw Phillips and Vieira as the centre mids for me, Baker an option for further forward

Klich MOTM for us imo. Ideguchi had a decent game, faded a bit in the second half. Dalby, Pearce & Baker all decent too – Baker & Klich in the middle works well – really need another centre-back and a target man #lufc

Klich deserves a proper chance this pre season

Klich is an absolute baller, better get a chance! Some one to one defence coaching and could fill that deep lying midfield/3rd CB roll perfectly. #lufc
