Leeds United youngster Mateusz Bogusz has again reiterated his desire to leave the club on loan for the upcoming season.
The Polish talent has been in fine form with the Poland under-21 side during the international break and has clearly enjoyed getting some regular playing time.
With that in mind, he is not ready to have another season in the under-23s.
“Here in the national team I was able to play nice matches,” Bogusz told TVP Sport, as reported by Sportowe Fakty. “I missed playing lately because in Leeds I was mostly playing for the U-23 team. Whenever there is staff, I get tense, in this positive sense. I enjoy playing here. I hope it will continue like this.
“I’m still waiting. I hope to be on loan. I would like to play in a major league every week because I miss the “normal” games. Talks are still going on. I get along. I do not want to confuse what these directions are, but there are several options.”
He told TVP Sport in July that he would definitely be heading out on loan this summer, after a potential exit in January fell through.
That came just days after he made his league debut for Leeds in the final game of the Championship season against Charlton Athletic.
But in terms of long-term future, it appears he still sees himself at Leeds, as those July comments also included a reference to signing a new deal to remain contracted to Thorp Arch.
Bogusz was expected by some to play a more inclusive first-team role for Leeds last season after an impressive pre-season. However, he struggled to break into Marcelo Bielsa’s thinking and spent much of the season in the under-23 set-up under Carlos Corberan.
But hopefully Leeds can find the perfect location for Bogusz to get some regular playing time next season, as he still has the potential to flourish into a potential first-team star.
