In the summer of 2014, Mikha signed a contract with Olimpia. In the 2015/16 season, he helped the club win the championship.

On May 14, 2017, in an away match against Cagliari (2: 3 ) Micha scored his first goal for Empoli. At the end of the 2016/17 season, the club was relegated to Serie B, but Seitz remained in the team. A year later, in the 2017/18 season, Micha, as part of his club, became the winner of Serie B.
