Though they are names now heard long ago, they were “still on the books” as the saying goes. Today finished off a process that started in Summer where Leeds looked to move a number of players on that were deemed surplus to requirements and firmly outside of Marcelo Bielsa’s plans.
Pawel Cibicki has completed a permanent transfer to polish side Pogon Szczecin and Lewie Coyle has made his two and a half year loan at Fleetwood Town permanent, at last.
The defender and midfielder will be no great loss to Leeds, both barely, if at all, made an impact. The latter was a product of the academy but the former was part of Victor Orta’s spending spree in the Summer of 2017 when his remit was simply to bulk up the squad.
It’s not expected that Leeds will garner much of a fee for either of them, though it may gift them such extra wiggle room in terms of the wage budget. This may prove useful as Leeds look to secure players on loan in this window. If not, these transfers can be regarded as simple administration.
