Jakub Moder will be full of confidence as he prepares for international duty after completing his move from Lech Poznan to Albion yesterday.

The 21-year-old midfielder signed a five-year deal and was one of two signings on deadline day for Albion along with fellow Polish international defender Michal Karbownik from Legia Warsaw, who signed a four-year deal.

Both Moder and Karbownik have gone back on loan to Poznan and Warsaw respectively.

The pair have returned to the Polish national team set-up in Gdansk on Tuesday night and underwent Covid-19 screening before they resumed training yesterday.

Moder is currently on international duty with Poland as they prepare to face Finland tonight in a friendly (7:45pm) before their two Nations League games against Italy on Sunday and Bosnia next Wednesday.

The 21-year-old has broken into the senior Poland side recently, having made his debut in their 1-0 defeat to the Netherlands in the Nations League, at the start of last month.

Moder has been a key player for Poznan over the last couple of season and started this campaign well scoring two goals in ten games in all competitions.

When Albion announced the signing of Moder they said he has returned to Lech “for the time being.”

That is so that Albion can see how he does in the first half of the season, which will include their tough Europa League campaign.

Lech has been drawn in Group D alongside Benfica, Rangers and Standard Liege.

If Moder was to impress for Lech in the Europa League he could well work his way into Albion head coach Graham Potter’s first team squad.

After Moder signed Albion technical director Dan Ashworth admitted it was a tough decision as to whether to loan him out.

He said: “Jakub is an exciting young central midfielder, who has already broken through into the Poland national squad at the age of 21.

“He is athletic, strong and good with both feet. He is very highly thought of within the national set-up, and we did consider bringing him over straight away.

“However the loan back to Poznan suits Jakob and us for now – as he will play regularly both domestically and in the group phase of the Europa League, and at this stage that is the best thing for his development.”

Karbownik is slightly younger at 19, but it a senior international for Poland.

He was called up for the squad with Moder in the last international break.

However, he is yet to get his first cap as he was on the bench in their 1-0 defeat to the Netherlands and 2-1 over Bosnia at the start of last month.

Karbownik took to Instagram after securing his move from Albion.

He said: “A big challenge is coming. Hello, Brighton see you soon! Legia Warsaw there is still one more chapter for me to write!”

The 19-year-old left back will be hoping to top his week off by getting his first cap for Poland in their friendly against Finland.
