Russian racer Artem Laguta has put pen to paper on a new deal with Grudziadz in the PGE Ekstraliga.

The double Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations world champion hinted towards the end of the season that a deal had been reached and with the transfer window open, Laguta has confirmed he will return for 2020.

Grudziadz boss Marcin Murawski admits he couldn’t imagine the club without one of its star men as he joins the likes of Nicki Pedersen and Kenneth Bjerre there for next year.

He said: “I don't think anyone can imagine our team without this rider. This year, both we and Artem did not want to wait until the end of the season, which is why we began talks about the extension of the contract in June.

“We managed to reach an agreement quickly and we are happy that our Russian will start in Grudziadz for the sixth season.”

Elsewhere, world No.2 Leon Madsen put the finishing touches to his three-year Czestochowa deal announced at the end of the season. He will serve as Lions skipper next year and is joined at the club by Rune Holta, who makes the move from relegated Torun.

Lublin have signed a new contract with SGP second reserve Mikkel Michelsen for 2020.

Posting on Facebook, he wrote: “I can now officially announce that I have signed a one-year deal with Lublin for 2020.

“It wasn’t really a hard choice if you take everything in to consideration: amazing fans, good club and a strong line-up for next year. This year with Lublin has been amazing and I’m so happy and excited to be back for next year.”

Wroclaw have added Great Britain international Dan Bewley to their squad, with the under-21 star tipped for a possible role as the club’s No.8 in 2020.

He joins forces with a stellar squad, also featuring triple world champion Tai Woffinden, local hero Maciej Janowski, SGP newcomer Max Fricke, World Under-21 champion Maksym Drabik, Russian rocket Gleb Chugunov and Latvian star Andzejs Lebedevs.
