Jan Bednarek BiographyLast updated 09 Aug 2017
Former clubs: Lech Poznań, Górnik Łęczna (loan)
Born in Słupca in April 1996, young Polish centre-back Bednarek has spent the entirety of his career at Ekstraklasa side Lech Poznań, having broken through their academy ranks.
He made his first-team debut in 2013 at the age of 17, in a game Poznań won 2-0 against Piast Gliwice.
The 21-year-old spent the 2015/16 side on loan at Górnik Łęczna to gain valuable experience, making 17 appearances before returning to his parent club and becoming an integral asset at the heart of defence.
In the 2016/17 season, Bednarek made 31 appearances, scoring one goal as the side finished third in the Polish top-flight, while losing out in the Polish Cup final 2-1 to Arka Gdynia after extra time.
Football is clearly a passion that runs in the family, with older brother Filip playing as goalkeeper for Dutch side De Graafschap.
A boyhood Lech Poznań fan, he supported the club in the away end against their rivals Legia Warsaw in October 2015, stating that he wanted to experience an away match from a different perspective.
Internationally, he has played through all the young levels from under-16s for Poland and started every game of the 2017 Under-21 European Championship, which included a game against an England side with four Saints.
