The 23-year-old left-back has agreed a two-year contract with the club and says that he's looking forward to the new challenge.

Speaking to Sky Sport News he said: "I'm nervous because it's happened all of a sudden and there's a big culture change. But, there's excitement there as well and I'm looking forward to it."

Lech have qualified for European competition next season, having guaranteed the runners-up spot in the Polish Ekstraklasa division, and Douglas said it's a move he couldn't refuse.

He added: "There's more lows than highs in football and I don't want to live with any regrets which is why I think I have taken this challenge as well.

"Part of the deal is that me and my partner go to Polish lessons.

"Obviously that's the first language here and I am sure I will pick up little bits as I go."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
