Born in Słupca, Poland, he began his footballing prospects with Lech Poznań, progressing through their ranks to make his Ekstraklasa debut in 2-0 win over Piast Gliwice in 2013 when he was just 17 years of age. The youngster saw very little action in his first couple of seasons with The Kolejorz and decided to go out on loan to fellow Ekstraklasa club Gòrnik Łęczna in a quest to find regular first-team football ahead of the 2015/16 season. The defender made 17 Ekstraklasa appearances for Gòrnik Łęczna as the club finished second from bottom in the league table, however, his parent club were impressed by the form he showed while out on loan and upon his return was installed in to Lech Poznań's first-team. During the 2016/17 the Polish centre-back featured 27 times in the Ekstraklasa as Lech Poznań finished third in the Ekstraklasa table thereby qualifying for the UEFA Europa League. Lech Poznań would also narrowly miss out on the Polish Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Arka Gdynia. In July 2017 the Polish centre-back joined Premier League club Southampton FC on a five-year deal for a fee of £5 million. He made his Premier League debut against Chelsea and scored his clubs second goal in an eventual 3-2 defeat. He made his international debut for Poland in a 3-0 win over Kazakhstan on 4 September 2017, the defender would star in Poland's 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign scoring his first-ever goal for his country in a 1-0 victory over Japan.
