Bednarek returns from Villa loan


Defender Jan Bednarek has been recalled from his loan spell at Aston Villa, the club can confirm.

The 26-year-old Poland international moved to Villa Park in the summer on a temporary deal, but he has now returned to provide additional experience and depth to Nathan Jones’s squad for the remainder of the season.

Bednarek has made 153 Saints appearances since joining from Lech Poznan in 2017 and the centre-back will now be looking to add to that total.
