Cech has won 44 caps for Slovakia

West Bromwich Albion defender Marek Cech has left joined Turkish side Trabzonspor for an undisclosed fee.

The 28-year-old Slovakian international flew to Turkey to compete his move, ending his three-year spell at The Hawthorns.

Cech was given permission to leave Slovakia's training camp ahead of their 2012 European Championship qualifier against the Republic of Ireland.

He made 68 appearances for the Baggies after joining from Porto in 2008.

The left-back lost his regular starting place to Nicky Shorey at the end of last season and has made just one Carling Cup appearance this season.

Cech is the second West Brom player to leave for Turkey following Scott Carson's move to Bursapsor.

Trabzonspor will be competing in the Champions League this season following Fenerbahce's withdrawal.
