“He will go on loan at the beginning as it is important for him to continue his development and he is willing to play regularly.
“We will be watching with interest as he is a very exciting young talent and player that I am really looking forward to working with in the future.”
The 18-year-old has been linked to Jurgen Klopp’s move to Albion as well as Liverpool.
Kacper also became the youngest player in history to represent his country at the European Championship, when he entered Poland at the age of 17 in a 1-1 draw with Spain at Euro 2020 in June.
Technical Director Dan Ashworth said: “He is a brilliant young talent and we are delighted to have completed the recruitment of Kacper who has made great progress in his career at a very early stage.
– The original plan for Kacper in the short term was to spend the rest of the season on loan at Union. David Weir and his team will monitor his progress there.
Kozłowski signed the contract until June 2026 and intends to borrow in the current transfer window to the leaders of the Belgian league Royale Union St-Gilloise.
