Arsenal loanee Krystian Bielik answers question over his future – and could Charlton Athletic return be on?


Sunday’s League One play-off final is not the end of the season for Krystian Bielik – as he goes straight into camp for the European U21 Championship.

And the Arsenal man, on loan with Charlton, says that he is shelving thoughts over his future until he does get a break.

Charlton face Sunderland tomorrow at Wembley with a place in the Championship at stake.

“I really like the [Charlton] training ground, the players and staff – everything is great here,” said Bielik, who scored in the play-off semi-final second leg against Doncaster. “But I can’t really tell you what is going to happen next season.

“I don’t know. There is the Euros in front of me. I’m just trying to focus on football now – the final and the Euros. 

“I don’t really talk about other stuff with my agent. It is about football and he will decide when it is a good time to tell me about everything.

“But right now I don’t think about any offers or new contracts.

“I have 23 people coming to the game [on Sunday] – not all of my family, but 23 people who are really important to me. They will be there not just to support me but the whole team. They fly in from Poland and then we all fly back together to Poland, because then I only have a few days break before I start the training camp for the Euros.

“Hopefully after the Euros has finished I will get a few weeks off.”

Poland U21s face Belgium on June 16. They also have Italy and Spain in their group.
