Polish striker Maciej  Żurawski has returned to Wisła Kraków after five seasons playing abroad.

Żurawski, who won four titles and scored 101 goals in 153 league games for Wisła during his first stint between 1999 and 2005, moves back to Poland following spells with Scottish outfit Celtic FC, Larissa FC of Greece and AC Omonia in Cyprus.

"I have come back to a club which is very important to me," said the 72-cap international. "I won a lot with Wisła before and hope to do the same again. I am an experienced player and think that can help the team and the younger players. I had some offers from abroad but wanted to come back to Poland."

Wisła finished second in last season's Polish First Division and will play Lithuanian side KFK Šiauliai in the UEFA Europa League second qualifying round, with the first leg away from home on 15 July.
