Belgian club Anderlecht reportedly value Czech football midfielder Jan Polák at 15 million euros and won’t allow the Czech international to depart to any other club for less. The player recently told a Czech daily he had received an offer but admitted Anderlecht was against his leaving. The player first joined the club last year; unofficial estimates gauged his transfer from Nuremburg at around 3.5 million euros. Anderlecht coach Ariel Jacobs has called Polák one of the team’s “best players”, saying the midfielder had “enormous potential”. He also said he wouldn’t be surprised if Polák one day moved on to one of the richer leagues.
