Michal Daněk (born 6 July 1983) is a Czech footballer, currently playing for SK Dynamo České Budějovice. In the past he played most notably for FC Baník Ostrava, whom he has supported throughout his life.[1] Daněk was a member of the squad of Baník Ostrava in the 2003–04 season, when Baník won the league title.

Since 2006 has Daněk played for FC Viktoria Plzeň. In the 2006–07 Gambrinus liga, Daněk was one of four players in the league to play every minute of every match.[2] Daněk claimed in August 2007 he was to meet Celtic for signing talks.[3]

In January 2008 he linked up with West Bromwich Albion for a few days' training on trial.[4] He then signed on loan for six months, with a view to a permanent deal.[5]

On 31 January 2008, Daněk signed for Albion on loan for the rest of the season.[6] His loan was extended at the end of the season by six months until 1 January 2009.[7] His loan was terminated on 29 August 2008 without having made a first-team appearance for Albion.[8] Daněk returned to FC Viktoria Plzeň afterwards. He won the Czech Cup with the club in 2010. In the same year, he moved to FC Baník Ostrava on loan.

He was called up to play internationally for the Czech Republic in March 2010, though he did not play in the match.
