The Millwall man has played in just five games across all competitions this season. Skalak’s last Championship appearance came in a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest in December, in which he came off the bench to make a late cameo.

Czech publication iSport writes that only the formalities remain before Skalak’s return to Mlada Boleslav is confirmed.

The winger has been out of Czech football for five years, having joined Brighton and Hove Albion in 2016. While plying his trade in his home nation, Skalak represented Sparta Prague, Zbrovjoka Brno (loan) and Mlada Boleslav, who he joined permanently after an initial loan move.

The Czech midfielder has played 38 times for Lions in his time at The Den. In the process, Skalak has netted two goals and providing two assists but has found game time hard to come by this season.
