Pawel Cibicki's loan spell away from Leeds really isn't going well

Leeds United loanee is not having a great time in Holland yet.

Sweden's forward Pawel Cibicki vies for the ball during the UEFA U-21 European Championship Group A football match Poland v Sweden in Lublin, Poland on June 19, 2017.

Two Leeds United loanees went head to head this weekend in the Eredivisie. At least they should have done.

Pawel Cibicki did not even  get on the pitch for ADO Den Haag as his side took on Jay-Roy Grot's Vitesse.

This was the third game in a row that Swedish attacker Cibicki has been an unused substitute for his loan club.


He has just two starts this season, which both came in losses, plus one brief substitute appearance back in August. His last appearance came back in September.

There is a good portion of the season remaining, but the early signs are not good for the Swede, who has had a stop-start career since signing for Leeds in 2017.

On the other side of the pitch, Jay-Roy Grot did start, but he didn't have a great game.

His side suffered a shock 2-0 home loss and he was erratic.

Grot attempted five shots, landing just one on target.

Both players have a lot of improving to do if they are to land permanent moves away from Leeds, or to earn a second shot in Yorkshire. Right now, both are stuck in limbo.
