Newcastle-linked Ladislav Krejci opens door to January transfer

Ladislav Krejci has been linked with Newcastle United in the recent past and claims he will be allowed to move in January if a suitable offer is made.

Ladislav Krejci feels the time has come for him to take on a new challenge.

A product of Sparta Prague’s academy system, the highly-rated winger has spent his entire career to date with his home-town club.

At the age of 22, he believes it is now important for him to start maximising his potential.

His ability has made him a senior Czech Republic international and sparked reported interest from England, Germany, Spain, Italy and Holland.

Newcastle United and Inter Milan are among those reported to be keen on a man who has been promised by his current employers that he can move in January if a suitable offer is tabled.

Krejci told Sportovni Noviny: “We have agreed that I can go when a specific offer arrives. Nothing has happened as yet so there is nothing to discuss, but the time is approaching for me to move somewhere.

“I believe I’m ready but I don’t want to push it and rush things.”

Krejci has been capped on 10 occasions by his country since making his debut back in 2012.

He has been part of the first-team set-up at Sparta since 2008, when he was just 16.

A talented left winger with a keen eye for goal, Krejci could be a useful addition for a number of Premier League clubs – with creativity a much sought-after commodity.
