According to Polish reports Gloswielko Polski, Derby County and Blackburn Rovers must now wait until the summer if they are to land target Kamil Jozwiak.
The Polish report claims Lech Poznan no longer need to sell the player to raise funds. The Polish club have instead sold Darko Jevticia to Rubin Kazan for £500,000.
Moreover, Jozwiak would reportedly prefer to stay at Poznan. The winger hopes to go to Euro2020 with Poland and feels regular playing time will enhance his chances.
Both Derby and Blackburn have been linked with a move for the player.
Jozwiak, 21, has been one of Poznan’s standout players this season. He is extremely quick, skilful and direct. He has four goals and two assists in 19 league games.
Derby have lacked quality in wide areas this season. The Rams failed to replace Harry Wilson after the Welshman netted 18 goals on loan at Pride Park last term.
Florian Jozefzoon has struggled. Mason Bennett has largely been injured, and Jamie Paterson lasted just six months on loan before returning to Bristol City.
The Rams have looked to strengthen this month. Manager Phillip Cocu wanted players in early, but so far, the Dutchman has been left frustrated at a lack of movement.
Jozwiak would have been an ideal recruitment. The £3m-rated winger is young, relatively inexpensive and boasts huge potential. He would fit in with Derby’s long-term plan.
But, it seems the Midland club and Championship rivals Blackburn must now wait.
The report adds Poznan will need to cash in on him this summer. Jozwiak’s contract expires in 2021, and a good Euro2020 spell could maximize his potential value.
