    Checked in on this player after remembering the link to Ostrava in winter, and the update doesn't sound good at all. He seems to have been dropped from the first team and had a falling out with the manager.

    The report also speculates his contract (which has 2 additional years remaining) will most likely be terminated by mutual agreement.

    Sounds like he will be signing for Sigma Olomouc

    The same journalist tweeted an image of him at training, adding that if the 2nd part of medical test goes well he will sign a two year deal tomorrow.

    As for the team he's close to joining...

    Sigma only have 2 forwards on their current roster, so its a position they needed to add depth. They had a rough off-season as their manager left for Sparta Prague and a key player transferred to Viktoria Plzen. I don't expect Olomouc to be any better than lower mid-table this season but should be clear of relegation.

    I think if you average out their history Sigma Olomouc on average would be a mid-table Czech team, but its more that they finish top 5 (Europa League level) one year and fight against relegation the next than consistently finish 8-10. I would say they've been more frequently bad than good this decade and their heyday was the 1990s and first few years of the 2000s.

    It's a decently supported club in a nice historic city with a unique stadium though.

    Czech league is considerably stronger than the Slovak especially at the top of the table (13 vs 30 in UEFA coefficient), but quality difference aside many aspects are similar so it's a bit like being promoted from the 2nd division.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he is at least on the bench Saturday as Olomouc's starting forward picked up a red card in the season opener last week.

    He made a debut from the bench late in Olomouc's 1 - 0 win over Zlin, but wasn't really involved in anything in the short time.

    He played about 5 minutes when they switched to 2 strikers after conceding an equalizer. Really bad result for Olomouc as Karvina are possibly the worst team in the league.

    Came on in stoppage time even though they played with two up front. I think he is very clearly their 3rd choice (out of 3) striker.

    They're in the Slovak top flight for the first time in their history this season, and they currently sit in last place with 12 points from the opening 18 matches. Seems like they could use the help.
