Great Britain racer Robert Lambert admitted he hasn’t been short of PGE Ekstraliga offers for 2021.

Lambert has confirmed he will be leaving Rybnik at the end of the season following their relegation to the Polish First Division.

His chances of securing a new top-flight team are massively boosted by the fact he can occupy a club’s under-24 berth for the next two seasons, and the European champion is undoubtedly one of the best in the world in that category.

We are in talks and a few options are looking good. We still have time and I don’t want to rush into something that’s going to backfire.

Asked if he had received offers from PGE Ekstraliga clubs, Lambert revealed: “I have been speaking to nearly all of them. It’s a hard decision to know what to do and which way to go.

“Rybnik is not an option because I want to stay in the Ekstraliga. I want to be racing against the best.

“We are in talks and a few options are looking good. We still have time and I don’t want to rush into something that’s going to backfire. I have to make the right decision as to which way I go.”

Lambert has thrived in a season which saw him race solely in the Polish leagues, Sweden and the Speedway European Championship.

He was due to ride for boyhood club King’s Lynn in the SGB Premiership this season until the British leagues were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Teams are expected to track unchanged sides for next year. But asked if he plans to return to British speedway in 2021, Lambert admitted: “I’m not sure yet. It’s obviously going to be a very busy season, racing in Poland, the GPs and the SEC as well. I haven’t really spoken to King’s Lynn yet. But who knows?

“This season I haven’t raced in the UK and haven’t been so busy, which sort of helped. I was able to focus on the right things a bit more and that worked out. I have a lot of thinking to do and I still have a lot of time to decide which way I am going to go. It’s still there to be thought about.”
