Sevilla complete €7m deal for Czech keeper VaclikJuly 9, 2018
Sevilla have completed the signing of Czech Republic stopper Tomas Vaclik on a €7m deal.
Vaclik’s arrival at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan follows the signings of Roque Mesa and Ibrahim Amadou, who will all join pre-season training on Monday morning.
The 29-year-old has signed a three deal to join the Spanish side and comes after spending four years with Swiss side Basel.
Vaclik began his career with FC Vitkovice in the Czech second division, where he enjoyed three seasons before gaining a move to Viktoria Zizkov – winning promotion to the first division in the youngsters first season with the club.
Having had a good season, Vaclik gained a good reputation and he was signed by Dutch side De Graafschap, but he failed a medical and was forced to return to Prague, where he would play half a season more for Zizkov before moving to Sparta.
Moving to Basel in 2014, Vaclik has won the Swiss league on three occasions, as well as winning the Swiss Cup.
Capped 20 times by the Czech national team, the goalkeeper will now contest the number one spot at Sevilla with Sergio Rico and David Soria, although the former has been linked with a summer exit from the club.
