WEST HAM UNITED have announced the signing of Czech midfielder Tomáš Souček from Slavia Prague.
Souček has initially linked up with the London Stadium outfit on a loan deal until the end of the current campaign with an option to make the deal permanent at its conclusion.
The 24-year-old has been capped 25 times by the Czech Republic and Hammers boss, David Moyes, was clearly pleased to have secured his signature.
“We are delighted to welcome Tomáš to West Ham United,” the Scotsman told www.whufc.com.
“I think that he gives us a lot of different qualities, but most importantly he fits the profile of the player we want to bring to the Club. He is young and hungry but with an established pedigree and proven talent.
“He was captain of Slavia Prague, he’s played as a defensive midfielder but he’s scored a lot of goals as an attacking midfielder as well. At the moment he ticks a lot of boxes. We need to give him the opportunity and time to settle in but we are confident he will prove to be a strong addition to the squad.”
