Official: Bielik joins Walsall on loan


Arsenal have confirmed that Krystian Bielik will spend the rest of the season on loan at League One side Walsall.

The Poland under-21 international was part of Arsene Wenger’s pre-season plans when the club travelled to Australia and China, however, surgery on a shoulder injury has hampered his progression this season.


Bielik did well when he was sent to Birmingham City on loan last season and will be hoping he can make a similar impact at the Bescot Stadium.

Pleased with his new arrival, Walsall boss Jon Whitney said: “Krystian is a very technical, ball-playing centre-half and he’s had a good loan spell with Birmingham last season, so he’s got a Midlands connection.

“He was really good for them but he’s had a shoulder injury in the last few months.

“I’ve been chasing him for about two or three weeks now, and we’ve persuaded him to come here ahead of other League One clubs and some abroad, too. We’d like to thank Arsenal and Arsene Wenger for allowing him to come to us.”

All the best Krystian.
