Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich has returned a negative result from a follow up Covid-19 test with Poland.

The 30-year-old - who linked up with his national team this week for the March international break - initially gave a positive result and was self-isolating in line with current regulations.

Klich was due to travel to Budapest on Wednesday ahead of a clash with Hungary on Thursday evening in Poland's opening World Cup qualifier ahead of Qatar 2022.

It was announced that he would miss his nation's first game in Group I after the news of a positive result for coronavirus was announced by the Polish Football Association.

In a statement made by media officer Jakub Kwiatkowski, it was said that Klich would self-isolate before undergoing another test to confirm the result.

The Whites midfielder, though, has now tested negative for the virus after a further examination was administered.

It remains to be seen whether Klich will link up with his international teammates in Hungary after being given the all clear.

Reports in Poland have suggested he will have to produce another negative test before any decision is made over his involvement for the rest of the international break.

This would mean Klich will miss the game against Hungary but potentially be available against Andorra (March 28) and England (March 31) in the coming days.

Poland are facing a busy triple-header of matches as they prepare for three World Cup qualifiers in the space of 10 days.
