Bialkowski expresses desire to stay at Millwall

Town keeper Bartosz Bialkowki is currently enjoying a very successful loan spell with Championship club Millwall, something he wants to continue for at least the remainder of the campaign.

It has been reported that Town might want to recall Bart from his loan spell at The Den, with speculation he could either be played if Will Norris is recalled by Wolves, or sold while his stock is seemingly high after some fine displays for Millwall.

Speaking prior to Millwall’s 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest on Friday night, Bialkowski said: “I don’t think they are gonna call me back and play me,” he said. “We need to wait and see what happens.

“I came here for a year and whatever happens, happens. I’d like to stay here. I’m really enjoying my life here – the work with LT [Lee Turner] the goalie coach as well.

“As a footballer when you go into a new place you’re doing everything you can to blend into the group and make the club better. That was it.

“The lads are fantastic and the atmosphere is very good, especially at home. The fans can be our 12th player.

“On the one hand it doesn’t bother me [that his long-term situation is not clear] but in the other it’s my future. I’m 32, I’ve got a wife and kids – I’ve got to look after them as well.

“If you get a chance you’ve got to secure that future.

“I’m playing, I’m playing well and hopefully the two clubs can do something about it.”

Although Bialkowski still lives in the area and his daughters go to a local primary school, it still seems likely that The Pole’s future will be away from Portman Road. If Will Norris is recalled by Wolves, Lambert may choose to act on the recent reports linking David Cornell to Town, or promote penalty shootout hero Adam Przybek as Holy’s understudy.
