Polanski signs permanent Mainz deal
The 24-year-old was loaned from the Spanish club until next June, but he has now agreed on a new three-year contract with the Bundesliga side and will not be returning to
"Mainz is an excellent club for me," said the midfielder. "Next year, we will move to a fantastic brand new stadium and I feel very happy in the region with my family.
"I am really glad to have completed this transfer so soon as this gives me room to plan beyond next summer."
Polanski was unable to celebrate his new contract with a win yesterday, however, as Mainz lost their second game in a row, going down 1-0 at Freiburg.
"The way the penalty was given was bitter for us," he complained. "Nobody knew why it had been given. We wanted to keep a clean sheet and, because of this, we were not able to.
"There are incidents like that in the penalty area four or five times per match. We need to agree on a common procedure."
