With the summer transfer window fast approaching, Leeds United will be weighing up their squad and identifying players who could be shifted out on loan or permanently.
Signed back in January of 2019. Mateusz Bogusz has been a regular for the club’s under-23 side, though has struggled to feature for Marcelo Bielsa’s first team.
The 18-year-old could be a player that Leeds look to shift on loan this summer to help him develop and mature as a player.
What do you think are the best next steps for Bogusz at Leeds?
The team here at FLW discuss….
It feels like this might be the best move for the young playmaker this summer. He’s not had much of a look-in this season and if Leeds go up, it’s going to continue that way.
Bogusz is a decent prospect, but what’s on the line at Leeds mean a luxury player like him probably isn’t needed. That’s unfortunate, but it’s just the way things are.
Leeds need to pick the right club for him, preferably in the Championship, who can offer him games and a chance to develop.
Then, and only then, will we know whether he’s going to ever be good enough for Elland Road in the future.
A priority this summer. Leeds owe it to the player.

It should be a no-brainer to loan him out ahead of next season.
I’m still surprised that Leeds haven’t decided not to loan him out in this year’s campaign, as he simply hasn’t been getting a chance anywhere near the first-team recently.
Mateusz Klich and Kalvn Phillips are far better options to have in the starting XI at the moment for Leeds, and Bogusz will only get pushed further down the pecking order when other players arrive at Elland Road during the summer transfer window.
I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen from Bogusz in the Leeds Under-23s, and he could certainly do a job for a Championship side next season.
It’ll be interesting to see how much of a future he has with Leeds though, as I have my doubts as to whether he’ll be a Premier League player anytime soon.
He’s got to spend next season away on loan, surely?
I was surprised that Bogusz wasn’t sent out this summer, even in January, after finding regular game time hard to come by under Marcelo Bielsa, and he should banging down the Argentine’s door for a move away this summer.
We have seen the likes of Jamie Shackleton, Robbie Gotts, Jordan Stevens and Pascal Struijk all be involved in and around the first-team this season, but for some reason Bogusz has been unable to break into the setup, so whether he is a problem in training or not is a mystery.
A loan move away could do him the world of good and it could be beneficial for his development, as at this stage of his career, he needs to be playing regularly and get a taste of mens’ football.
Conor Shaughnessy and Mallik Wilks tried to impress out on loan, though, and they still haven’t managed to break into Bielsa’s plans, so he needs be wary.
