Marek Jankulovski: Will return to Banik

The 34-year-old is set to make his comeback at Czech top-flight side Banik having recently recovered from a knee operation he underwent in April.

Jankulovski left Banik for Italy 11 years ago and has enjoyed stints at Napoli, Udinese and most recently Milan.

The left-back notched up 158 appearances over six seasons with the Rossoneri, helping them to UEFA Champions League success in 2007.
