Brighton & Hove Albion’s Michał Karbownik is currently on loan at Legia Warsaw, but it’s not clear whether or not he will still be with the Polish side beyond the ongoing transfer window.
There appears to be a bit of confusion in Poland about it all, so we’ll run you through what we’ve found, in the order we found it.
The midfielder’s agent Mariusz Piekarski has since backed the aforementioned claims during an interview with Przegląd Sportowy.
“There is a provision in the contract with Legia that they [Brighton] can decide on such an option until January 15,” he said.
It was earlier suggested Graham Potter’s side were considering to allow the Poland international to join Anderlecht on a loan deal, but this has now been dismissed in today’s newspaper.
Karbownik’s options are he can either continue at Legia Warsaw until the end of the season, return to Brighton in January and move elsewhere on another loan deal or be a part of Potter’s plans at The Amex.
However, Piekarski believes his client is not in the best shape to arrive in the Premier League.
“The English club paid a considerable amount for him and have the right to decide about his future. It is not a problem,” Piekarski explained.
“The only thing that worries me is that Michał has not been training with full loads for five weeks. If he were healthy, I am convinced that his form could help both Legia and Brighton. This boy is just highly skilled,”
At the time of publishing the report on Thursday evening, the player’s future was ‘still unknown’.
Online, however, Przegląd Sportowy explain (via Onet Sport) Karbownik ‘definitely says goodbye’ to Legia Warsaw.
It’s claimed he will leave the Polish side and move to Brighton.
The outlet further adds the option to return to Warsaw or move to Anderlecht on loan no longer exists.
This suggests a decision was taken overnight that Karbownik would be heading to England instead of staying at Legia.
Let’s wait and see.
