Russian bank Sberbank is reportedly planning to sell its Slovakian and Hungarian business units.

Czech-Slovak investment group Penta, Italy’s UniCredit and Hungarian bank OTP are among the firms who are interested in buying the Slovak unit, Reuters reported citing a report published by Czech newspaper Lidove Noviny.

"Sberbank in the Czech Republic is not for sale, but a deal is already being prepared in Hungary and Slovakia," the report said.

Sberbank had assets worth EUR2bn in Slovakia and EUR1.6bn in Hungary.

Sberbank declined to comment on the matter.

In December last year, reports emerged that Sberbank is planning to divest the two units.
