Goalkeeper Michal Danek has returned to the Czech Republic after having his loan spell terminated by West Brom.
The 25-year-old, who had been with the Baggies since January, has returned to Viktoria Plzen.
But he will not remain there for long as their No.1 keeper is Tomas Postulka.
Instead, he will go out to another club to allow him to get the regular football he needs to recapture his best form.
Viktoria Plzen general director Adolf Sadek told Sport.cz: "We have reached agreement with West Bromwich over Michael's return to the Czech league so he will join our team on Monday.
"We will immediately start solving his future as we want Michal to play regularly and get into his ideal form.
"A lot of Czech clubs have contacted us over Danek but we need to consider everything carefully first."
Danek joined West Brom on a six-month loan in January but failed to make a first-team appearance during the Baggies' charge to promotion from the Championship.
However, this summer manager Tony Mowbray opted to exercise a clause in his contract, extending the shot-stopper's stay for a further six months.
But the Baggies brought in Scott Carson over the summer, and with Dean Kiely also in the squad, Danek's chances of even making the bench are limited.
This led him to be linked to clubs such as Scottish side Motherwell, Dutch club Den Haag and a number of German teams, but he has now returned to the Czech Republic.
