The 27-year-old midfielder has joined for an undisclosed fee and is expected to provide drive and control the midfield as the Czech side looking to qualify for the European Competitions.

With over than 25 appearances for his home country and over than 140 appearances for a number of reputable clubs like Rostov and Red Star, Kanga is expected to be a successful signing for one of the biggest clubs in the Czech Republic.

Kanga may prove to be an inspiration for young Africans to try and move to Eastern European clubs as he was previously the first Gabonese international to play in the Serbian first division.
