Russian racer Emil Sayfutdinov is set to choose between Torun and Leszno as he prepares to leave Czestochowa on loan for 2014.

The former world No.3 has ended his stay with the Lions following a season which has left him waiting for unpaid wages.

He has the prospect of forming a dream top five with 2012 world champion Chris Holder, Polish icon Tomasz Gollob, SGP sensation Darcy Ward and local hero Adrian Miedzinski at Torun.

He is also wanted by Leszno to spearhead their team for next season as they search for a long-term replacement for Jaroslaw Hampel, who joined Zielona Gora last winter.

His manager Tomasz Suskiewicz told Sportowefakty.pl: “We have offers from both clubs and we have not made ​​any decision yet. I think that this will happen around Thursday.”

If Sayfutdinov selects Torun, Greg Hancock is also said to be in the running to lead the Bulls, despite being linked with Tarnow.

Elsewhere, Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup winner Patryk Dudek has signed a new three-year contract with Zielona Gora.

The 21-year-old, who also held talks with Torun, moves up to the senior ranks in 2014 and joins the likes of Hampel, Andreas Jonsson and Piotr Protasiewicz in a powerful side.

Leszno are hopeful of signing new contracts with brothers Przemyslaw and Piotr Pawlicki, but are said to have dropped plans to sign Danish international Peter Kildemand, who is being linked with Czestochowa.
