Soucek extends Hammers loan spell

TOMAS SOUCEK has extended his current loan with West Ham United until the conclusion of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

The Havlíčkův Brod-born midfielder initially linked up with the East Londoners in January from Slavia Prague, making four appearances before the suspension of competitive football.

The 25-year-old has been capped 25 times by the Czech Republic and was named the countries Footballer of the Year in 2019.

With the Premier League rules amended due to the late conclusion of the season, Soucek will now remain at the London Stadium with an option to make the deal permanent once the Hammers have competed their final nine league fixtures.
