Cywka to make Rams switch permanent

The Poland Under-21 international enjoyed a successful loan spell

with the Championship club towards the end of the 2009/10 season.

And he has now penned a two-year deal at Pride Park, which will

become effective from July 1. Rams boss Nigel Clough told the

club’s official website: “We’re delighted to have Tomasz signed up

for two years. “His performances towards the end of the season were

impressive and we were delighted with what we saw. He instantly

struck up a rapport with the supporters who took to Tomasz straight

away. “Tomasz isn’t the finished article by any means but he has

plenty of talent and potential. We’re confident he can develop with

us and become a very good player for years to come in a Derby

County shirt.” Wigan manager Roberto Martinez admitted he

understood Cywka’s reason’s for moving on. “There was a deal on the

table for him here,” Martinez told Wigan’s official website. “But

Tomasz feels his chances of first team football will be better

served at Derby and I respect that decision. “We wish him all the

best in the future.”
