Barry Douglas says he wants to build on his ‘amazing journey’ at Lech Poznan after the former Dundee United left-back sealed a shock return to Poland from Leeds United.

The capped Scotland full-back left Leeds United at the end of last season following a loan spell at Blackburn Rovers. He had offers to remain in the UK, but Douglas has instead opted for the surprising option of Lech Poznan, where he won the Ekstraklasa in 2015. Douglas first joined Poznan in 2013 after three years with Dundee United.

Speaking of his return to Lech Poznan via social media, the former Dundee United and Leeds United left-back said: “Eight years ago we took a leap into the unknown and started our amazing journey in Poland.

“It’s now time to continue that amazing journey as a husband and father of two beautiful children. I’m a new person but as motivated and hungry for success as I’ve always been. It’s time to write a new chapter let’s go.”
