Klich missed Sunday's Premier League clash at Burnley having tested positive for Covid-19, revealed by the midfielder on social media.

Poland face three games in eight days next month - including a World Cup qualifier against England on Wednesday, September 8 - but Sousa says that Klich will take no part.

"We cannot use Mateusz Klich now," said Sousa.
