Legia Warsaw’s Michal Karbownik who has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, has now signed a new deal with the Polish outfit.
The 19-year-old has been impressive since bursting on to the scene this season, managing six assists in just 19 league appearances this season (transfermarkt.com).
Tottenham are said to have been alerted to Karbownik’s progress with the club reportedly having sent scouts to Poland on multiple occasions to watch the teenager in action (The Mirror – 26/04, p68).
The speculation surrounding the defender’s future further intensified after his agent, Mariusz Piekarski claimed at the start of the month that the youngster was attracting interest from multiple clubs from the top leagues around Europe (Meczyki).
Piekarski hinted that Spurs were interested in the full-back by revealing that the media’s reports about Karbownik’s future had been accurate.
However, the defender has now put an end the speculation surrounding his future by committing his future to Legia.
The club confirmed on their official website that the teenager has penned a new deal that runs until 2024.

Karbownik’s agent was probably just overselling the interest in the youngster in order to get him the best deal possible. Even if we were to have signed him, the Poland international would have been one for the future instead of someone who could have improved our backline straight away.
We also have some talented young defenders like Malachi Fagan-Walcott and Dennis Cirkin who are very close to breaking into the first-team. So, signing Karbownik this summer wouldn’t have made too much for Spurs.
