West Ham United signed Czech Republic international Tomáš Souček from Slavia Prague on an initial loan deal until the end of the 2019/20 season in late January 2020, with an option to make the transfer permanent in the summer.

The towering central midfielder won two Czech First League titles and two Czech Cups during an outstanding career in his homeland that also saw him excel in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League for Slavia.

A strong physical presence thanks to his 6ft 4ins frame, Souček has built an impressive reputation as an energetic midfielder with both defensive and attacking qualities.
