Filip Čihák is leaving Viktoria Plzeň for Hradec, where he spent two seasons on loan.

The 24-year-old defender has one league start for Viktoria, the others came on loan in Pardubice and in the last two seasons in Hradec Králové. He is now heading there for a transfer.

"Filip is undoubtedly a quality stopper, but in the current competition we would not be able to guarantee him a regular playing load. It is better for his further football development if he moves to a familiar environment," said Daniel Kolář, the club´s sport director.
