Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Košice, Lalkovič spent his early career with Košice-Barca and MFK Košice before signing for English club Chelsea in 2007.[citation needed] He joined Doncaster Rovers in August 2010; Lalkovič made a total of six appearances for Doncaster before returning to Chelsea.[2]

Lalkovič signed a season-long loan deal with Dutch club ADO Den Haag in August 2011,[3] and a season-long loan deal with Portuguese club Vitória de Guimarães in July 2012.[citation needed] On 4 January 2013 Lalkovič was recalled by Chelsea as he was struggling to find regular playing time.[4]

On 15 July 2013, Lalkovič signed for Walsall on a six-month loan deal.[5] During this period, Lalkovič scored 4 times in 24 appearances. On 6 January 2014, Lalkovič extended his loan with Walsall until the end of the season.[6] On 23 May 2014, Chelsea released Lalkovič and made him available for free transfer.[7][8]

On 25 July 2014, Lalkovič signed a deal with Czech FK Mladá Boleslav.[9] Following the termination of his deal with the side, he completed a free transfer to League One side Barnsley on 8 January 2015, signing an eighteen-month contract.[10] Lalkovič made his Barnsley début coming off the bench in a 2–0 victory against Yeovil Town.[11] Lalkovič made seventeen appearances in total for the Tykes but was permitted to conclude his contract early at the end of the season.[12]

Walsall[edit]

Lalkovič rejoined Walsall on 16 July 2015, signing a one–year deal with the Saddlers.[13] He scored his first goal in his second spell at Walsall in a League Cup tie against Brighton & Hove Albion.[14]

Portsmouth[edit]

On 28 June 2016, Lalkovič signed a two-year deal with Portsmouth for an undisclosed fee after failing to agree a new contract with Walsall.[15]
