Pawel Cibicki has told Swedish outlet Expressen that he expects to stay with Elfsborg as the Leeds forward nears the end of his loan spell with the Allsvenskan side.
Cibicki has been the forgotten man at Elland Road for much of his spell with the Championship side. Despite a couple of glimpses of quality during his first year with the Whites, the 25-year-old has proved to be an incredibly underwhelming signing.
The former Sweden under-21 international spent almost the entirety of last season on loan, initially joining Molde before heading to Elsfborg in January. And with the loan about to come to an end, the forward suggested that he would like to stay exactly where he is, but hinted that nothing has been decided yet.
"Elfsborg knows what I want and that is the most important thing. It is for the club to solve everything so we'll see what happens," he told Expressen.
"I think so. But you never know what happens," he went on to add when asked about whether he expects to stay with Elfsborg.
Even if Elfsborg fail to agree a deal with Leeds - it is mentioned in the report that they have an option - it would be a big surprise to see Cibicki play for the Whites again.
Marcelo Bielsa appeared to show no interest in having Cibicki in his plans 12 months ago, and his form during his time away will have done little to make the Leeds boss rethink his stance on the former Malmo man.
It appears to make sense for all parties if the two clubs can agree a deal that brings a permanent end to Cibicki's time on Leeds' books.
