Club career

In the Netherlands

After initially trialling with Eredivisie side AFC Ajax, he signed 1.5-year contract with the Dutch club in October 2010. The contract effective from 1 January 2010 also included the option for Ajax to extend by another year.[2][3] He made his debut in the first team in February as a substitute in a 4–0 home win against Roda JC.[4]

He scored his first Ajax' goal in a 2010–11 pre-season friendly win against Chelsea on 23 July 2010.[5] He did not play in any official first-team matches during the 2010–11 season and his contract at Ajax was not renewed.

On 27 June 2011, Suk signed a two-year contract with FC Groningen, Groningen also had an option for another two years.[6]

In Portugal and Saudi Arabia

In January 2013, Suk signed with C.S. Marítimo, and netted his first goal in his third match, a 1–0 win against Sporting.[7]

On 11 July 2013, he signed with Al-Ahli.

On 30 June 2014, he signed a four-year contract with C.D. Nacional.

On 12 January 2015, Suk was signed by another Portuguese side, Vitória de Setúbal. On 2 January 2016 he scored an unstoppable free-kick only four minutes into a match against Braga.[8][9]

Porto and loans

On 15 January 2016, Suk moved to FC Porto.[10]

On 11 August 2016, Suk moved to Trabzonspor on a one-year loan with an option to sign permanently. According to Trabzonspor's stock market report the fee paid to Porto by Trabzonspor was €750,000 and Suk was going to make more than €1 million a year.[11][12] On 31 January 2017, after half a season at Trabzonspor and not finding much success, Suk's loan was cut short.[13] The same day, a move to Bastia broke down although a loan agreement with Porto had been signed. The reason given by Bastia was that administrative documents had not been transferred in time.[13][14]

On 14 February 2017, Suk joined Hungarian side Debrecen on loan for the rest of the season.[15]

On 30 August 2017, he was again sent on loan, joining Ligue 1 club Troyes AC for 2017–18 season.[16]
