Marek Stech has returned to childhood club Sparta Prague on a three-year deal having turned down a new contract at Yeovil Town.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper from the Czech Republic, who is currently on international duty with his country, put pen to paper after previous incumbent Tomas Vaclik headed for Swiss outfit Basel.

Stech had been tipped to join Sky Bet Championship club Watford following the Glovers' relegation to League One, but has instead headed back to the team he represented as a youngster before being spotted by West Ham United.

Yeovil's Wembley play-off hero said: "It's a wonderful feeling to be back in Sparta.

"It's nice to be back this summer and I am very much looking forward to the new challenge."

Stech became a firm fans' favourite in 72 appearances across two seasons for the Glovers, proving himself as arguably the best goalkeepers in League One before showing his second-tier credentials.

Byron Webster and Luke Ayling have also turned down new deals with the Glovers. Centre half Webster is expected to meet with Millwall next week with Ipswich Town and Leeds United reportedly also interested.

Brentford and Ipswich are understood to be pursuing right-back Ayling.
