WEST BROMWICH, England. August 30 (PSN) – Grzegorz Krychowiak has landed on a season long loan to West Bromwich Albion.
The Baggies announced the signing of the Poland international coupled together with England international Kieran Gibbs on Wednesday.
Krychowiak, since his move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer has experienced plenty of criticism due to his lack of play at the French capital club. This has even led to Poland manager Adam Nawalka choosing to not call him up for the latest FIFA World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Denmark and Kazakhstan.
It was clear that the 27-year-old was not wanted in Paris, and despite a number of clubs making a move to try and obtain him, Krychowiak himself declined most of the offers. Instead he was hoping on either joining a prestigious club or at the very least one playing in a prestigious league.
Fortunately, West Bromwich Albion came calling and the rest is history. While not a top tier English club, it will nonetheless allow Krychowiak to try his luck of playing in the English Premiership – as well regain his lost form.
“I had a lot of propositions (…) but this is a very ambitious club. There’s a good atmosphere here,” Krychowiak told WBA.co.uk.
Despite being relegated to reserve status at PSG for the past season, Krychowiak is still seen as a significant addition to the Premier League club whom has been in the market seeking for a suitable holding midfielder.
“This is a fantastic loan agreement for Albion and we are very pleased to have completed the transfer,” Albion Chairman John Williams told the club website.
“We are delighted to welcome him and are confident he will make a significant contribution to the first-team group this season.”
