Aston Villa striker Libor Kozak is on his way out of the club. The Czech Republic striker’s torrid time at Villa Park is coming to an end and he confirmed his exit, when his contract expires this summer, on his Instagram page last week.

The Czech now has to try and fight back from various different injury problems, which have plagued his stay in England.

This week he has been tweeting about a former club, showing he still has immense loyalty to Serie A side Lazio - from whom Aston Villa snapped him up:

 

He would undoubtedly grab the opportunity to return to Lazio with both hands if such a deal became a possibility but the likelihood is that Kozak will not be heading to Lazio or a team of similar stature next season.

He has played just seven times in three seasons since suffering a horror leg break back in January 2014 during a training ground collision with Ciaran Clark.

This summer he will be on the hunt for a new team, who will have to remember his decent start at Villa and his Europa League heroics with Lazio in order to consider a move.
