Poland youth international defender Maik Nawrocki has made his switch to the Ekstraklasa permanent. After his loan spell from Werder Bremen during the 2021/22 season, the 21-year-old has signed a deal to stay at Legia Warsaw until the end of the 2024/25 season.
In a dismal season for the Wojskowi, the emergence of young centre-back Nawrocki was a silver lining. In total he played 29 matches and scoring once for Legia, during a season which he saw interrupted through injury twice – most recently suffering ankle ligament damage in March’s 4-1 victory over Bruk-Bet Termalica Nieciecza, which kept him out for the remainder of the season.
Prior to his arrival in Warsaw, Bremen-born Nawrocki played three times on loan at Warta Poznań.
