Milan Lalkovic

Mutual Consent



Portsmouth Football Club can announce that Milan Lalkovic has left the club by mutual consent.

The 25-year-old Slovakian winger netted one goal in 18 appearances after joining Pompey from Walsall in the summer of 2016.

He featured in a 1-1 draw with his former club at the start of the current campaign, but has recently been sidelined with an Achilles problem.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “Milan has been unfortunate with injuries this season, but has been nothing but professional since I’ve been working with him.

“We have a number of options in that area of the pitch, so we felt it best for both parties if he moved on.

“But we thank Milan for all his efforts and wish him well in the next stage of his football career.”

Lalkovic began his career with Chelsea and spent the second half of last season on loan at Scottish side Ross County.
