Czech mate – Brighton & Hove Albion sign international forward – but is there one more to come?

Posted On 01 Feb 2016 at 8:46 pm

The Albion have signed Czech international Jiri Skalak from Mlada Boleslav for a so far undisclosed fee and on a 3 year contract.

Earlier today two Albion players went out on loan . Rohan Ince to Fulham, and Elvis Manu joined Huddersfield. Development squad midfielder Charlie Harris has left the club to sign permanently for Barnsley. 

But Skalak is the most significant signing of deadline day so far. The forward has played five times for his country,  but has yet to score an international goal . Although he did play in Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

With only a couple of hours of deadline day left the Seagulls have a small amount of time to make  the marquee signing many fans wanted. Although the loan window opens again very soon.
