Athletic are delighted to announce the signing of 24 year-old Czech striker Leoš Loos who has joined us from Dutch Divisie VI side Green-White United for a fee of just over £2 million.

Speaking of the new signing, Marcus said “Leoš is a big lad and is a proven goalscorer. We faced a bit of competition for his signature, so I’m absolutely delighted to have him here”.

He continued, “I think we’ve been a bit light up front since Daniel Hasnaş left, and we’ve needed an experienced striker to partner Onésimo. Leoš will certainly do that, and I think that we now have a very potent front line”.

Marcus confirmed that the new signing will go straight into the squad for tomorrow’s match at Carbrain saying, “When you’ve got a player like him in your squad, you don’t leave him in the stand. He’s been playing regularly, so there’s no problem with his fitness and his inclusion is an easy decision to make”.
