Jach Becomes Second January Signing
Hot on the heels of Erdal Rakip joining the Eagles, Polish international Jaroslaw Jach arrives from Zaglebie Lubin.
The 23-year-old 6ft 4in tall defender has signed a three-and-a-half year contract for an undisclosed fee.
Talking to the official club website, the Pole revealed how pleased he is with the move; “This is a dream come true, the Premier League was the league I have followed since I was little and I always wanted to come and play here. I know it is the club from South London and has an outstanding manager in Roy Hodgson. Every game is a sell-out which is one of the greatest things.”
Born in Bielawa, in South West Poland, Jaroslaw began his career in the youth set up at Pogon Pieszyce before moving on to Lechia Dzierżoniów in 2009 which is where he made his professional debut in 2011.
After twenty appearances and one goal, the centre back signed for Zaglebie Lubin in 2013. He did not make his debut for them until 2014 but he went on to make over seventy appearances for the Ekstraklasa side before deciding to join Palace this week to become the first Polish player to join the Eagles.
Jach made his international debut for the Under 21s in 2015 and was handed his first full cap last November against Uruguay before making a second appearance when Poland faced Mexico.
Like Rakip, it remains to be seen how Jach fits into the squad initially but with almost a second string back line it is unlikely to be long before we see him make his debut for the club.
Welcome to Palace Jaroslaw!
