PAWEL CIBICKI has missed training with Malmo today amid speculation linking the 23-year-old with a deadline week switch to Leeds United.

United are known to have taken a look at the versatile striker or winger who has been capped ten times by Sweden’s under-21s.

Reports in Sweden have suggested that the attacker could join Leeds in a deal worth £1.45m and Malmo’s sporting director Daniel Andersson told Swedish outlet Fotbollskanalen that Cibicki had missed training to have discussions with another team.

“He has gone to meet a club,” said Andersson.

Asked if the club was English, the sporting director said: “Feel free to speculate.”

Cicicki was linked with a move to both Manchester United and Ajax earlier year after representing his country in the Euro Under-21s in Poland.

Napoli, Celta Vigo and Real Betis were also all thought to be keen.

Leeds, meanwhile, are continuing to close in on the capture of Hamburg striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga on a season-long loan.
