Poland under-21s international Bogusz spent the 2020-21 season on loan at Spanish Segunda División side UD Logrones, who were relegated after finishing third bottom.

The attacking midfielder made 24 appearances for the Spanish side, scoring once, and the 19-year-old says he would be best suited to another loan move for the 2021-22 campaign.

Leeds signed Bogusz from Polish outfit Ruch Chorzow in January 2019 and he penned a new three-year deal last August, running until the summer of 2023.

The 19-year-old has made just three outings for the Whites, two of which came in the EFL Cup, although the teen made Marcelo Bielsa's bench for September's Premier League clash at home to Fulham, shortly before departing to Logrones on loan.

Bogusz told "My return to England at this point is probably not a priority, because in Leeds my chances of playing are low, so I still want to go on loan.

"I want to develop and keep playing, that's what I've missed recently and that's what I care about."

Opening up on when his next move would be discussed, Bogusz said: "It will be decided in the second half of June, we will talk about it with the Leeds authorities, and at the moment I do not know too much about it.

"For now, while on vacation, I want to clear my head from the ball.

"Return to Poland? I don't know if that would be a step back for me.

"I have to think carefully about everything, but there are rather interests from other clubs.

"For sure I am not canceling any proposal at the moment, I am open to offers, but I also know one thing that now I have to go to a club that will suit me with the style of the game, and I will fit the coach's concept."
