Slavic football player Jan Kuchta did not fly with the team to a training camp in Portugal and has permission from the club to negotiate a transfer abroad. According to the Russian server sport-express.ru, Lokomotiv Moskva, which has prepared a four-year contract for Kuchta, should become the new employer of the Czech shooter.
The Prague club should collect five million euros (about 123 million crowns) for the 24-year forward, which Moscow “railway workers” will repay within four years. Last year, Kuchta was the best scorer of Fortuna: Liga with fifteen hits, and in the current season he hit the highest Czech competition nine times in the autumn. He also contributed three goals to the promotion of the European Conference League group.
There was already interest in Kucht in the summer, but at that time it still remained in Slavia. Now the staff of the Czech sovereign will probably leave in recent years. He came to Slavia, where he previously worked as a youth, from Liberec in the summer of 2020 and became one of the mainstays.
In October, Kuchta was nominated for the Czech national team “A” and scored four starts for the national team. In the past, he played for other Prague clubs Bohemians 1905 and Žižkov, Slovácko, Teplice and Liberec, and in his youth for Sparta. He has 110 matches and 37 goals in the Czech league.
The defensive universal Ladislav Takács is also looking for a new engagement. The 25-year-old defender, who can also play the position of defensive midfielder, wasted practically the entire autumn part. He was injured in the Bohemians 1905 match in September and has not scored a minute since.
But Slavia also reports arrivals. The defender Maksym Talověrov became a reinforcement of the Czech champion. The 21-year-old Ukrainian stopper moved to Eden from České Budějovice and signed a five-year contract with the reigning league champion and current leader of the table.
At the start of the winter training, the Vršovice team also won midfielder Filip Blech from the second league Vlašim, who agreed on a contract in his new place of work until 30 June 2024.
Talověrov’s transfer has been talked about for a long time. The Ukrainian quarterback spent a successful autumn part of the season and helped the South Bohemians to the current eighth place in the league table.
A native of Donetsk, he went through the youth of the local Shakhtar, he also worked in the “béčka” of Sparta. He scored all 46 premier league starts so far in the jersey of České Budějovice, he has one goal on his account. He belongs to the staff of the Ukrainian national team of twenty-one.
“I am proud to play for a club like Slavia. For me, it is clearly the best team in the Czech Republic. I am very happy to be here,” Talověrov said on Slavia’s website.
“Despite its still very young age, Maksym has already played a number of matches in the highest competition, it has long been one of the players we watched. I believe that thanks to its quality and character it will succeed in Slavia,” added Jiří Bílek, Prague’s sports director.
Blecha expanded the Slavic reserve line. The 24-year-old midfielder was one of the best players in the second league in the autumn, scoring eight goals and four assists in 15 games in the Vlašim jersey. In the past, he also worked in Tábor and in the premier league team Bohemians 1905, for which, however, he scored the only start in the highest competition in May 2017.
“Filip was the best player in Vlašim in the autumn and one of the best players in the second league. For our strategic cooperation with Vlašim, we consider it important that its best players have a chance to fight their way to the Slavia squad. Filip Blecha will leave with the A-team for a training camp in Portugal. , after which he will decide on his next future, “said Bílek.
“I can’t even describe how I feel, I’m going straight to Slavia from the second league. It’s a huge jump, I’m very happy for that. I’m very happy. I hope to catch myself in Slavia and fight with her for titles and cups.” said Blecha.
Slavia traveled to Portugal for training camps with 27 field players and four goalkeepers. Danish defender Alexander Bah will join later due to a positive test for coronavirus, Peter Olayinka is waiting with Nigeria to take part in the African championship.
Captain Jan Bořil remained injured in Prague and he should decide on further medical treatment in the near future. On the other hand, the recovered defenders David Hovorka and Ondřej Kúdela and midfielder Lukáš Provod, who had not played for a long time, flew with the team.
