Lambert: Town and Millwall Talking About Permanent Bialkowski Switch
Friday, 10th Jan 2020 12:18
Blues boss Paul Lambert says Town and Millwall are in talks regarding Bartosz Bialkowski joining the Lions on a permanent basis.
Bialkowski moved to Millwall in the summer on a season-long loan and has enjoyed a hugely impressive first half of the season.
“I think the two clubs are talking,” Lambert said. “I said this before, I don’t think you’ll get the money that was bandied about here a few years ago for him.
“I spoke to Bart the other day, he came in and had a little visit which was nice. I think the two clubs are talking to see what can be done.”
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 it’s understood that under the deal agreed in the summer the Blues had only a limited period in which they could recall the Polish international in January in order to sell him elsewhere with the cut-off date having passed earlier in the week.
Bialkowski, who is on Town’s most lucrative current contract which runs until the summer of 2021 with the club having an option for a further season, joined Millwall on a season-long loan in July after a permanent £900,000 move broke down the previous month due to concerns regarding his knee which emerged in a medical.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
