West Ham United have confirmed the permanent signing of popular Czech midfielder, Tomáš Souček, from Slavia Prague.
Having netted three times in six appearances after initially linking up with the east Londoners on loan back in January, the 25-year-old signed a four-year deal with the club for a fee believed to be approaching £20m.
The current Czech Footballer of the Year was clearly delighted to secure his future, telling www.whufc.com: “When I came, everyone – like the players, staff at the Club, or all the figures at the training ground or at the stadium – was helpful.
“They have helped me with everything that I have needed. When I felt their support, I immediately felt very good on the pitch and in the changing room.
“I got to know the guys at the training ground through many training sessions and they have been really helpful to me. They took me in well and I immediately felt very good on the pitch.
“I knew I could play in my style and I felt that they believed in me. It was a great situation for me and I trusted myself.”
