Hull City

Club Complete Mazuch Signing

26 July 2017
The Tigers have completed the signing of Czech Republic international defender OndÅ?ej Mazuch for an undisclosed fee from Sparta Prague.

The 28-year-old initially joined up with the rest of Leonid Slutsky’s squad on trial during their pre-season training camp in Portugal, featuring in the 1-0 win over Benfica in the Algarve before also playing in Tuesday night’s goalless draw with FC Nantes.

Two impressive performances in those games have seen the centre-back rewarded with a permanent two-year deal.

Mazuch has previously played for Fiorentina, Anderlecht and Ukrainian side Dnipro, and has represented his country on four occasions.

Speaking after putting pen-to-paper on his deal at the Club’s University of Hull Training Ground earlier today, Mazuch said: “Of course I am very happy to sign the contract with Hull because it has always been my dream to play in England.

“I’m delighted the Club have given me this fantastic opportunity and I would like to thank everyone who has helped me to make this transfer. Now the deal has been finalised, I can’t wait for the new season to start.”
