Tomas Soucek becomes official

West Ham have officially confirmed the arrival of Czech Republic international Tomáš Souček from Slavia Prague in the last few minutes.

The 24-year-old signs on an initial loan deal until the end of the 2019/20 season, with an option to make the transfer permanent in the summer.

Manager David Moyes told WHUFC.com: “We are delighted to welcome Tomáš to West Ham United. 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.”

  1. Welcome Tomas, all the best.

  2. Sensible way to structure the deal, but maybe this approach has been knocked back by other clubs for players we have been enquiring about.
