GLIWICE, Poland. July 5 (PSN) – It was no secret that Konstantin Vassiljev would not extend his contract with Jagiellonia Bialystok.

According to many reports, the Estonian was supposed to leave the LOTTO Ekstraklasa and play abroad. However, this week the midfielder instead signed a surprise contract with Piast Gliwice.

Vassiljev is returning back to the club from Upper Silesia. The 32-year-old already played for the Gliwice club from 2014-2015. The 97-capped Estonia international made 28 appearances for the club before leaving for Jagiellonia.

He now returned, having signed up on a three-year deal with the Polish club from the south. This past season Vassiljev played 33 games in the 2016/17 campaign for Jagiellonia, scoring 13 goals.

To Piast he joins on a free transfer.

“I’m going back to Piast Gliwice and I hope this return will be successful. I believe that a good season awaits us and I am glad to be part of it.” Vassiljev told the official club website.

“I had a positive relationship with the club, the supporters and the city. It was two years ago, but it left a nice trail, so I thought about it, one day returning to Gliwice,”
