Season long loan of Majewski confirmed..

It’s been talked about for a while, was all but confirmed yesterday – but is now official, Polish international Radoslaw Majewski will be on loan at Forest for the duration of the 2009/2010 season.  Indeed, his career as a Forest player started this evening, where he scored within two minutes against Rushden and Diamonds!

The 22 year old is widely regarded as one of Poland’s rising stars, which has earned him five caps for the Polish national team.  Billy commented that we’ve been watching his progress for some time, and confirmed the convenient way to refer to him is Raddy which will come in handy for those of you trying to think up chants for him!

On the official site, he said:

“We’re delighted to have Raddy on board. He’s a player we’ve been watching for a long time and a player that has produced several good performances at international level.  I’ve spoken to several people close to international football who have had nothing but good things to say about him.”

“And having seen him play, watched several DVD’s and closely monitored his progress, we certainly think we’re bringing in a player that has got an excellent footballing brain and a wonderful touch.  He certainly has the ability to create and score goals and on his day can be a real handful.  He’s a very fit young man and is another young player with great potential who will only get better.”

So that’s more good news!  One thing more negative folks have mentioned is the lack of creativity in the team – personally I would point to McGugan, Anderson, McCleary, Adebola (from a ‘flick on’ point of view) as well as Tyson and Earnshaw as options for this – as well as McKenna in a ‘setting up’ the creative players.  But Majewski apparently provides this role more blatantly.  Will be great to see how he settles in!

Welcome aboard, Raddy.  Anyone else lost count of how many players we’ve signed?
