Promising Czech footballer Matěj Vydra to join Italy’s Udinese


Promising young Czech soccer player Matěj Vydra is about to sign with Udinese, the newspaper Sport reported. The 18-year-old striker joins the Italian Serie A club from Czech side Baník Ostrava, where he made a big impression in the second half of last season. Sport said Vydra would put pen to paper after a medical at Udinese on Thursday. The Italians are set to pay around EUR four million for the youngster, which is around seven times what Baník paid the Czech second-tier club Jihlava for him last January.
