Sivok at centre of transfer battle
Czech Republic defender Tomas Sivok is at the centre of a transfer battle between at least three sides, following the expiration of his current contract with Besiktas.
Sivok, 28, who played at centre-back for the Czech side at Euro 2012 can also play in midfield and has opened official talks with La Liga side Sevilla over a move to the south of Spain.
The player's agent, Jiri Mueller, suggests that the Andalucian side face competition from Besiktas, who haven't given up hope of a new deal, and an unnamed Premier League side for the player's signature.
"We have opened official talks with Sevilla and would like to have things sorted out as soon as possible," Mueller told CTK.
"We also have registered interest from a club in the Premier League and Besiktas have come back into the race as they want to keep Tomas."
Sivok has made 30 international appearances for the Czech Republic since his debut in 2005.
