Millwall manager

Millwall have agreed to sign Bartosz Bialkowski on a permanent deal from Ipswich Town, Football Insider can reveal.

The Poland international goalkeeper joined the Londoners on a season-long loan last summer, just weeks after the plug was pulled on his permanent move to the club.

A Millwall source has told Football Insider that the club have now agreed terms with Ipswich for Bialkowski, 32, to join on a full-time basis.

His loan is set to be converted into a permanent deal that will run for 18 more months until the summer of 2021.

It comes after the Poland international keeper proved his fitness to the Lions staff in the opening half of the campaign.

Millwall had put plans to sign him permanently on hold last summer amid concerns regarding his knee.
