Pudil to join Belgian club Genk

Czech midfielder Daniel Pudil will join Belgian club Genk from Slovan Liberec following agreement between the two clubs, the Czech first division outfit announced on Wednesday. Italian clubs Reggina and Lecce have also been in the hunt for the player. Pudil was loaned to league champions Slavia Prague from Liberec in the spring following disciplinary problems with his home club. The Czech champions did not take up an option to retain his services sending him back to the northern Czech club.
