Smith secures Lalkovic...THE SADDLERS have completed the loan signing of Milan Lalkovic from Chelsea in a deal that will run initially until January 2014.
The Slovakian Under-21 International first arrived at Stamford Bridge as an under-14 player and has made impressive progress ever since.
A wide man with pace, he can play anywhere across the front three.
The 20 year-old has previously served Doncaster Rovers, Dutch outfit, ADO Den Haag and, most recently, top-flight Portuguese outfit, Vitoria Guimaraes on loan as he continues his education in the game.
“He is a player that I have tried to sign on loan a couple of times previously,” said Saddlers’ boss, Dean Smith. “I am delighted to finally be able to bring him here.
“He’s a goalscorer with tremendous pace who knows where to run and has been well schooled in the game.
“He’s highly-rated at Chelsea and will certainly bring a threat. He is a welcome addition to the squad.”
