Bart Set to Stay at Millwall
Wednesday, 8th Jan 2020 14:30

Town reportedly can no longer recall Bartosz Bialkowski from his loan at Millwall during the January transfer window.

TWTD revealed earlier in the week that Cardiff and Blackburn were keen on signing the 32-year-old on a permanent basis during this window but, according to the London News Online, under the season-long loan deal agreed in the summer the Blues had only a limited period in which they could recall the Polish international in January with the cut-off date having passed earlier in the week.

That being the case, Bialkowski will now remain with the Lions, with whom he has been a big success in first half of the campaign, for the rest of the season with the former Southampton and Notts County man’s long-term future set to be looked at in the summer.

Cardiff, who are managed by ex-Millwall boss Neil Harris, were eyeing a move for Bialkowski as West Ham were keen on their keeper Neil Etheridge, however, the Hammers have subsequently agreed to re-sign Darren Randolph from Middlesbrough.

In my opinion I don't think we will see him playing for Town again, so if Millwall can afford do a deal this window if possible or sell to the highest bidder in the summer, then move on

I'd like to think that if we did get promoted he'd still have a future here. Him and Holy competing for the jersey would be a very strong goalkeeping department in my opinion.

Let's mark this one down as a failure. The recall period should have ended with the transfer window, and not before.

Slick. As ever. Well done.

What a very bizarre situation! Who sanctions a loan deal that doesn't allow a whole transfer window for potential sale? Especially at a club such as ours under financial pressure. Surely a restricted window means reduced bargaining power on our part?

If Millwall do attempt to sign him in the summer as I’m sure they will, there can be no attempts to devalue our asking price on the basis of some cock surrounding a failed medical- he’s played every game for them so far this season I believe.

Crazy thing is - he’s a far better keeper than either Holy or Norris. He won’t be back at Portman Road, he became disillusioned with the state of flux at the Club, simple as that.
Now enjoying where he is.

another classic balls up by the club, you couldnt make it up .

I think Millwall are taking the wee wee out of us getting a top keeper for nothing. if he failed a medical he shouldn't have been allowed to leave well done Ipswich another brilliant bit of business.

Without the transfer money from Bart I cannot imagine that ME will shell out a lot of money for people like Luke Garbutt - which is a pity. Maybe if Toto brings in a fee? Not sure who else who could command a material fee and be sold without alienating supporters - perhaps Judge but based on this season's experience that may also mean a very small fee.

He can play for us in the championship next year!

So what if Manchester United now offered us 10 mil in this transfer window could we not sell our own player???
