Mateusz Bogusz, the Leeds outcast who spent last season on loan with Ibiza, is reportedly close to signing for the second-tier club, according to the Spanish publication Diario De Ibiza. That is in spite of recent remarks made by Jesse Marsch.
Bogusz, 20, who suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury at the start of the year, is almost fully recovered.
He was a standout for Ibiza on loan during the first part of the season, making 22 appearances in league and cup play and contributing to 11 goals.
However, the injury cut short his season. He has a contract with Leeds through the summer of 2019. He is now there.
But Ibiza is now drawing closer to his arrival. The playmaker watched Ibiza’s weekend loss to Mallorca on penalties from the stands.
Marsch made a suggestion last week that he might observe Bogusz while he recovers before making a decision about him.
However, it now seems that the Pole will be going back to Spain to play for Ibiza once more, possibly permanently.
At this point in his career, Bogusz needs to go out and play. Before getting injured, he did that at Ibiza with 22 games on the horizon.
A change is necessary because Leeds isn’t likely to extend his contract past the summer.
The objective is for him to re-join a team where he knows he will play a lot of games. Both Bogusz and Ibiza like him.
