Czech international defender Michal Kadlec is taking his leave of Bayer 04 Leverkusen and the Bundesliga after agreeing terms with top Turkish outfit Fenerbahce SK.

"Michal has been one of Bayer 04's most influential players over the past few years. He delivered the goods out on the pitch and earned a very good reputation for himself in Leverkusen, and we wish him all the best for the future," sporting director Rudi Völler commented.
