Swansea Sign Birmingham Keeper Krysiak

Swansea  Sign Birmingham Keeper Krysiak

Roberto Martinez has moved to snap up Birmingham shot stopper Artur Krysiak to provide the much needed competition to Dorus De Vries.

Martinez has come under growing criticism over the course of the summer and the early part of the season by not brining in cover for the Dutchman but it seems that the Spaniard has the Polish U-19's international in his sights.

Krysiak started his career at his hometown club UKS SMS Łódź in the clubs youth side in 2004, when a move to Britain beaconed. Birmingham City snapped the youngster up but subsequently loaned him out to now defunct Scottish club Gretna in the sides first and only season in the SPL.

Finding his opportunities limited the 6ft plus keeper found himself third choice at St Andrews behind Maik Taylor and Irishman Colin Doyle. Subsequently this season the Pole was loaned out once again this time to York City who play in the Blue Square Premier but his spell at Kit Kat Crescent was cut short after the shot stopper sustained a dislocation to his finger.

Krysiak has featured regularly for the Blues reserve and academy sides. The 19 year old will not be available for selection when Swansea City and Birmingham meet in league action due to a contract clause in his loan agreement.
