Christian Herc joined Viktoria Plzen on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer but has struggled for playing time under Adrián Guľa. Initially, the 21-year-old was limited to cup games and reserve-team football for Plzen, but he’s recently returned to the first-team after a lengthy exile.
Herc has made three appearances in all competitions for the first-team and seven for the B-team. He’s been left out of the matchday squad 23 times and was an unused substitute six times.
The Slovakian midfielder has made just one Fortuna Liga appearance this season, picking up 16 minutes from the bench in Plzen’s 4-0 win over 1. FK Pribram (February 22). He was an unused substitute in their 2-1 win over FK Jablonec (February 29) but didn’t make the squad again until June.
Herc was left out of six league games over three months, returned to the bench in Plzen’s 1-0 win over SK Sigma Olomouc (June 14), but was dropped three days later for their MOL Cup defeat to Sparta Praha.
The 21-year-old is meant to stay at the Doosan Arena until 2021, but it’s unlikely he’ll see out his loan given the lack of opportunities. Wolves aren’t likely to have a place for Herc back at Molineux either.
