Former Leeds United player Pawel Cibicki has been suspended from football by the Polish FA pending an investigation into alleged match fixing.

Cibicki, who left Elland Road on a permanent basis in January last year, has been banned indefinitely pending the outcome.

The 27-year-old currently plys his trade for Polish side Pogon Szczecin in the Ekstraklasa - the country's top division - but is being investigated for his time with Swedish outfit IF Elfsborg, where he was on loan from the Whites.

The Swedish FA confirmed the news on Friday and say it relates to an incident surrounding a yellow card which was picked up against Kalmar FF during the 2018-19 campaign.

Cibicki made 10 appearances for Leeds in an otherwise unsuccessful spell in West Yorkshire after joining from Malmo in a deal worth £1.5m in 2017.
