Pekhart exits Tottenham

Striker returns to Czech Republic with FK Jablonec

Perkhart: Completed Czech move

Tottenham youngster Tomas Pekhart has completed a move to Czech Republic side FK Jablonec.

The 20-year-old had looked destined for stardom after his arrival from Slavia Prague in 2006, scoring 19 goals in 20 games for Spurs' academy side, before injuries hampered his progress.

Pekhart spent half of last season on loan at Southampton, netting just once in 12 appearances, and then returned to Slavia on a 12-month deal and helped them reclaim the Gambrinus Liga title.

The striker represented Czech Republic at last summer's U20 World Cup in Egypt but played just two games before pulling out of the tournament with a serious foot problem which required surgery in October.

Pekhart's transfer to Jablonec had appeared to have stalled but he has now signed a three-and-a-half-year deal and joined for an undisclosed fee.

Jablonec owner Miloslav Pelta said: "We did not want him on loan and that is why it has been the most difficult transfer made in the history of our club."
