Millwall confirm Jiří Skalák signing

Winger joins on long-term deal...

2 August 2018

Millwall Football Club is pleased to confirm the signing of Jiří Skalák on a long-term deal for an undisclosed fee from Brighton and Hove Albion.

The winger, 26, follows Murray Wallace and Ben Amos into The Den as Neil Harris' third summer signing.

The Czech started out at Sparta Prague and spent five years in the capital before joining Mlada Boleslav, where he initially played on loan (in addition to FC Brno) in the Czech First League - the equivalent of the Premier League in England.

After nine months at Boleslav, Skalák moved to England and to Brighton and Hove Albion for a fee of £1.2m, where the winger's career went from strength to strength, gaining experience in The Championship and helping The Seagulls towards promotion to the top division in 2016/17 with numerous assists.

The 26-year-old has 17 career goals to his name and is also capable of operating on either flank.

In addition, Skalak possesses 16 Czech Republic caps and played in a 2-2 draw with Croatia in the group stages of EURO 2016 in France.
