Malaga have confirmed that they have finally received clearance for summer signing Bartlomiej Pawlowski.
The 20-year-old impressed during preseason but was unavailable for the first official match of the season at Valencia last weekend, due to the Polish FA having delayed clearing his transfer.
Announced as joining Malaga earlier this summer, Pawlowski’s move was delayed as both Jagiellonia and Widzew Lodz laid claim to his registration.
However, on from Malaga lawyer Joaquin Jofre travelling out to Poland to resolve the matter earlier this week, the club have confirmed on Thursday that clearance has come through.
“Málaga Club de Fútbol received news this morning from Poland’s Football Federation that Pawlowski’s transfer will be cleared today, following a meeting yesterday with the Club’s legal adviser Joaquín Jofre, and president of the Polish Federation, Zbigniew Boniek,” read Malaga’s statement.
“Pawlowski will be available to the ‘Malaguista’ coaching team for Sunday’s game against Fútbol Club Barcelona at La Rosaleda.
“Málaga Club de Fútbol wish to thank the Polish Football Federation and Widzew Lodz, and regrets the difficulties posed by Jagiellonia Bialystok.”
Pawlowski can now feature in Bernd Schuster’s plans for this Sunday’s first home game of the season, against Barcelona.
It is believed that the Anchovies have reached a resolution by depositing the €300,000 fee due to take the youngster with the Polish FA and that they will resolve its distribution between the two clubs.
