Former world champion Jason Doyle will not return to PGE Ekstraliga side Unia Leszno in 2023, the club has confirmed.

There has been huge speculation about Doyle’s future with the Bulls in the Polish media in recent days, with growing rumours linking him with a move to newly-promoted club Krosno.

Leszno has already recruited 2012 world champion Chris Holder for the 2023 season and Doyle was expected to join him in spearheading the club’s title bid.

But posting on their social media accounts on Tuesday evening, Leszno confirmed Doyle was on his way out of Alfred Smoczyk Stadium.

The post simply read: “Officially!! Jason Doyle will not represent Fogo Unia Leszno in season 2023.”

It’s possible Doyle will opt for a busier calendar in 2023 after Polish speedway authorities agreed a deal with British bosses to allow PGE Ekstraliga riders to race in two other leagues from next year. Under the current rules, they are only permitted to compete in one other league.

Doyle spent this year with Leszno in Poland and SGB Premiership club Ipswich in the UK. But having made an end-of-season return to Sweden with Indianerna, the regulation change could clear the way for the FIM Speedway of Nations winner to compete in all three countries all season if he wishes.
