Football: Czech striker Kadlec signs for Frankfurt

Czech Republic striker Vaclav Kadlec has signed for Eintracht Frankfurt from Sparta Prague on a four-year deal, both clubs confirmed Sunday.

The 21-year-old has signed until 2017 and is reported to have cost the German club 3.2 million euros ($4.3m), according to local newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau.

"We agreed terms with the player and the club several weeks ago, so we are pleased to have now finalised the details," said Eintracht's director of sport Bruno Huebner.

"Kadlec was on the wish list of head coach Armin Veh, who has seen a lot of potential for development."

Kadlec, who scored 39 goals for Prague in 146 games, had also been courted by Russian side CSKA Moscow, who had made an unsuccessful offer for him.

The 21-year-old became his country's youngest-ever goalscorer since independence in 1993 when he scored on his debut as an 18-year-old in a 2-0 win over Liechtenstein in 2010 during a Euro 2012 qualifier.
