Ján Novák (born 6 March 1985) is a professional Slovak football striker who currently plays for the Corgoň Liga club MFK Košice, on loan from 1. FC Tatran Prešov.

Club career

Novák became the 2007–08 Corgoň Liga top goalscorer, scoring 17 goals in 23 matches. In 2 consecutive games he scored 8 times.[1] He scored three times against Roma at the 2009–10 UEFA Europa League play-off round whereby he showed great performance, evoking interest in Fulham.[2] Novák had a trial at Birmingham City in December 2009 for 5 days with a view to completing a £2m move. However Birmingham City manager decided against signing Novák stating that he wanted to sign players that he knew in fear of wasting the clubs transfer budget.[3] He was injured at pre-season training camp in July 2010. He had to undergo surgery of cruciate ligament and meniscus in August 2010.[4] Nevertheless he signed half-year loan for the Ligue 2 team Tours FC in December 2010.[5] His convalescence is not successful and he did not play any match for Tours. He played his first match after injury against Spartak Trnava on 24 July 2011. In first half of the 2011–12 season his form was behind performances before injury. In January 2012, he signed two-year contract for MŠK Žilina.[6]

International career

On 20 May 2008, Novák made his debut for the Slovakia national football team in a 0–1 defeat against Turkey in a friendly match.[7]
