Leeds United are reportedly willing to dismiss Mateusz Klich and Pawel Cibicki already

Leeds United's summer buys have not all proved instant successes like Samu Saiz.

Pawel Cibicki and Mateusz Klich have barely kicked a ball in the Championship, and are reportedly frustrated - who could blame them?

Leeds Live report the club is braced for January interest in the pair, and consideration will be granted to giving them both loan moves.

In the here and now, this might seem like a practical option for Leeds, and both players, who have outside chances of making their national team's squads for the 2018 World Cup.

But Leeds have to be a bit selfish here, and motivate the duo by rotating their bench, their line-up, and keeping them involved.

What is the rush on Leeds' part, to ditch players who they invested money in, and pay their wages?

Both players were bought for a reason, because the staff at the club felt they could have a positive impact on the team.

So far they have each been denied the opportunities to prove that they can do it.

The Championship season is not even halfway through yet, with 20 games out of 46 played. If Leeds have it their way they may have an extra three play-off matches, plus a run in the FA Cup.

Squad depth will be crucial, and Leeds discovered that late last season as the player they had relied upon earlier in the campaign lost their form.

Having a fresh pair of legs, increasingly motivated and frustrated, could pay off for Leeds down the stretch.

Ditching Cibicki and Klich now may not seem like a loss, but it could prove to be if injuries, suspensions and loss of form take their toll at just the wring time.
