Grzegorz Krychowiak in profile

30 August 2017

POLISH international Grzegorz Krychowiak will be turning out in the Premier League for the first time when he makes his Albion debut following a season-long loan move from Paris Saint German - subject to international clearance.

The midfielder, who can also play in defence, began his senior career in France with Bordeaux after initially playing youth football in his home country.

He made his Poland debut in December 2008 in a friendly against Serbia and has since gone on to represent his nation 45 times. This includes an impressive showing at Euro 2016 when he played every minute of every game as Poland reached the quarter finals of the competition.

Krychowiak spent two seasons on loan at Reims from 2009-2011, helping them win promotion to the French second tier in the 2009/10 campaign and playing a crucial role in their mid-table finish in Ligue 2 the following year.

He spent most of the 2011/12 season out on loan at Ligue 2 outfit Nantes before returning to Reims to sign permanently the following summer after their promotion to Ligue 1.

After making 70 league appearances for Reims across two seasons he secured a move to Spanish side Sevilla in August 2014.

The 27-year-old won back-to-back Europa League titles at Sevilla, scoring in the 2015 final win over Dnipro and playing an important part a year later as 'Los Rojiblancos' lifted the trophy at the expense of Liverpool.

A move to French giants PSG followed, and 'Greg' was part of the squad that won the Trophee des Champions, Coupe de la Ligue, Coupe de France and finished second in the league last season.
