Jarosław Fojut (born 17 October 1987) is a Polish footballer who plays as a centre back.

Club career[edit]

Bolton[edit]

Fojut joined Bolton Wanderers in 2004. The defender made his first senior appearance for Bolton as a substitute (to replace Khalilou Fadiga), during the FA Cup Third Round 3–0 victory against Watford at Vicarage Road in 2006.[1] His Premier League debut came in the 1–1 draw against Portsmouth at Fratton Park.[2] He made a total of four appearances for the first team, as well as becoming captain of the reserve team.[3]

Luton (loan)[edit]

On 31 August 2007, he joined League One side Luton Town on loan until 1 January 2008.[4] He made his debut for Luton in the Football League Trophy match against Northampton Town on 4 September. He scored his first goal on 27 November in a 2–0 away win against Brentford in the FA Cup[5] and followed that up a week later with his first league goal in a 1–1 tie away to Oldham Athletic.[6] He scored his third and final goal for Luton in a 2–1 win over Port Vale on 29 December 2007.[7]

Fojut garnered much praise during his loan spell, Luton manager Kevin Blackwell describing the young defender's performances as "colossal", however, his stay could not be extended, with all loan players being required to return to their parent clubs when Luton was placed in administration.[8]

He returned to Bolton Wanderers and over the summer underwent an operation to resolve a long-standing hernia problem.[3]

Stockport County (loan)[edit]

On 9 October 2008, Fojut began a one month loan spell at Stockport County in League One,[9] where he managed just three games due to a hamstring problem.[3]

Śląsk Wrocław[edit]

On 11 February 2009, Fojut signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with Śląsk Wrocław in the Polish Ekstraklasa.[10][11] On 17 January 2012, Fojut signed a pre-contract agreement with Scottish Premier League giants Celtic.[12] Fojut was due to join the club at the start of 2012–13 Scottish Premier League season, but he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury while playing for Śląsk Wrocław.[13] Celtic then decided to cancel their contract offer to Fojut.[13]

Tromsø IL[edit]

On 11 December 2012 the player and his agents were observed in Tromsø, Norway for negotiations with Tippeligaen club Tromsø IL.[14] On 21 December the club could inform the public that an agreement for 2.5 years had been reached with Fojut.[15] While warming up ahead of the league-match against Strømsgodset on 29 June 2013, Fojut crashed with an advertising board and broke his nose and was unable to play the match.[16]
