Brighton’s Czech Republic winger set to move to Millwall
Brighton winger Jiri Skalak is undergoing a medical at Millwall as he edges closer to joining the Lions, according to the South London Press.
The midfielder has found first team football hard to come by since Brighton’s promotion to the Premier League and looks set to join the Londoners in search of regular action.
Skalak joined the Seagulls in February of 2016 for an undisclosed fee which was thought to be around the £1.2m mark.
Since arriving at the Amex Stadium, Skalak has made 43 league appearances for the Seagulls and has found the back of the net on two occasions.
He was a key part of Brighton’s squad that helped them win promotion to the top flight, but lost his place as Chris Hughton brought in seasoned Internationals last campaign.
Millwall boss Neil Harris has been on the look out for a wide midfielder since Be Marshall opted to join Norwich over a return to The New Den.
The Lions will want to mount another promotion push next season after a brilliant second half of the season saw them shoot up the table.
He has experience of winning promotion from the Championship and that could be a big plus in the dressing room next season.
He has represented his country at all youth levels and has made 13 appearances for the senior side since his debut in 2015.
The 26 year old looks set to become Millwall’s third new signing of the summer and will provide healthy competition for a starting spot at the weekend.
