The details

Tomasz Hajto (Polish pronunciation: [ˈtɔmaʂ ˈxajtɔ]) (born 16 October 1972 in Maków Podhalański) is a Polish football coach and former footballer.

Club career

Tomasz Hajto (2007)

Having begun his career playing for Halniak Maków Podhalański, he moved to Góral Żywiec before making his big break in 1991 with Hutnik Kraków. His prowess as a youngster was noticed by many, and in 1993–94 he was transferred to Górnik Zabrze.

Hajto was soon to create interest from other countries, most particularly Germany and England, but it was to the former that he was first transferred. He first played for MSV Duisburg for two seasons. After the team was relegated to 2. Bundesliga, Hajto was transferred to FC Schalke 04, where he played until 2004. He then signed a two-year contract with 1. FC Nürnberg. As he had not met the expectations he was transferred to Southampton in summer 2005. In January 2006, his contract with Southampton was cancelled, enabling him to sign for Derby County on an eighteen-month contract, however this deal was also terminated early, after only four months at the club.

International career

Hajto participated in the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea and Japan. He has scored six goals in 62 caps for Poland, as of December 2005.
