Town boss, Paul Lambert remained surprisingly upbeat about the chances of keeper Bartosz Bialkowski reaming at Town.

We reported that Millwall had agreed a fee with Town, rumoured around a million pound, last week. We also understand the the Pole has completed a medical, however the keeper has been at Playford Road for both pre-season sessions this week.

Speaking at his press conference today, Lambert was asked about if Bart would be in goal come 3rd August opener at Burton Albion: “Listen, absolutely. There’s a massive chance, a huge chance.

“I’ve never thought anything else. It never really worried me what’s going on. 

“We had a chat at the end of the season. He’s a good guy, no problem.

“Until somebody says there is a massive amount of money on the table…”

When asked about if he knew of interest in Bart, Lambert replied: “No… I’ve just come back from holiday. I had a chat with him yesterday. I know Millwall were interested and everything that’s going on. Other than that I don’t know.

“He’s our player and he’s training with us this morning, unless he’s got a body double. I’m sure it’s Bart that’s here.”
