Gills Keeper Holy at Town for Medical and to Finalise Deal Friday, 24th May 2019 11:24
Gillingham’s Czech keeper Tomas Holy is at Portman Road today to undergo a medical and to finalise the details on what would be a Bosman free transfer to the Blues.
News of Town’s interest in the 27-year-old first broke last Saturday with Holy having been offered terms by the Blues. The deal is not yet done but we understand is close to completion.
Rychnov nad Kněžnou-born Holy, believed to be the world’s third-tallest keeper, came through the ranks at Sparta Prague but featured only for their B team - having spent time on loan at Graffin Vlasim, Viktoria Zizkov and Fastav Zlin - before joining the Gills in the summer of 2017.
Holy, who has won caps with the Czech Republic at U16, U17 and U18s levels and who was linked with Arsenal last summer, was an ever-present for the League One Gills during 2018/19 and in total made 107 appearances for the Kent club.
Town have spoken to a number of out-of-contract keepers since the end of the season - Exeter’s Christy Pym and QPR’s Matt Ingram among them - with Championship clubs having already shown interest in Bartosz Bialkowski and with Dean Gerken having been released at the end of the season.

Show PL and ME meaning business getting this nail asap, Bart not good enough last year but like I've said before for a goalie to win player of the year it means the defence has been poor. Well done PL and ME lets see what happens next
Don't care much for highlights- or not highlights videos. You could make Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo look like crap if you wanted to in a video. And anyone with two left legs in the Sunday league look like a worldbeater if he played enough games. It's what any player does over 90 minutes, over and over, thart matters.
Complete change of subject, but how do I stop this access to information box popping up every 2 clicks of the mouse????
Welcome to TWTD Thanks for visiting the site.
Wallingford boy. Having seen a video of him he seems pretty good at low shots. Like de Geary uses his feet well. Think ur gillingham mate must be the only one who doesn't rate him. Certainly mistvofvthrm seem gutted hes leaving. Itfcsince73. Surely ur not suggesting he was at fault for all the goals they conceded? Sure there were a few maybe but I would suspect he had a poor defence in front of him
Blues1. As I said, they wasn’t a bad team. Spent a lot of the season in the top half. But conceded a hell of a lot of goals, it seems luckily scored more to compensate. As for blame....the team put out I’d say?
