“Michal is at an age where he needs to be playing regularly and we will watch his progress in Germany closely. We wish him all the best for the season ahead.”

Speaking to Fortuna’s website, Karbownik said: “I was welcomed with open arms by everyone at Fortuna. My first impressions of the club are very positive and I can’t wait to get started. I want to do my part to ensure that we have a successful season.”

Düsseldorf’s sports director, Christian Weber, added: “With Michał Karbownik we gain several new options. He is a very flexible player and can play both full-back positions, but also feels at home in central midfield. We are very happy that we were able to bring Michał to Düsseldorf.”
