Followers of the Club’s social media channels will have again spotted a special theme to the transfer reveal, which sees Birmingham City partner with the NHS and Blood.co.uk to emphasize the importance of blood donation and the goalkeeper’s signing profiled Tony Sanders.
Speaking to BluesTV about coming back to St. Andrew’s, the versatile player spoke of his excitement for the campaign ahead.
“It feels great! I am happy to be back. I have been here once on loan when I was 19. I am looking forward and I had a great time here. I can’t really wait to be ready.
“I want to play as many games as I can do and enjoy time with the lads. I hope it will be a good season and we can achieve something good, something nice.”
After a promising youth career in his homeland, Bielik moved from academy football with Lech Poznan to the first-team environment at Legia Warsaw, making his top-flight debut in August 2014 before appearing in the Militarians’ UEFA Europa League campaign.
His performances in Poland caught the attention of Arsenal and in the subsequent winter, Arsene Wenger signed him for an undisclosed fee. At the Gunners, he would make two senior outings but continued to develop impressively and helped them win the Under-21s Premier League Division 2 play-off final in 2016.
