Czech striker Pekhart moves to Nuremberg

Czech striker Tomas Pekhart has joined Nuremberg in the

Bundesliga from Czech provincial side FK Jablonec.

Pekhart’s agent, Pavel Paska, said Tuesday that the 21-year-old

striker has signed a four-year-contract.

Earlier in his career, Pekhart was signed by Premier League side

Tottenham when he was 16 before he moved to Jablonec last year. The

year before, he spent at former club Slavia Prague on a one-year

loan deal.

Before moving to Slavia, he spent six months on loan at

Southampton in the second tier of English football after failing to

earn a regular spot in Tottenham’s first team.

Pekhart has played one game for the Czech national team.
