Cottagers move for Somogyi

08 July 2011 03:18
Goalkeeper Csaba Somogyi has joined Fulham from Hungarian second-tier side Rakospalotai EAC on a one-year deal.

New Cottagers boss Martin Jol had promised Somogyi he would sign him after the keeper impressed on trial at the manager's former club Ajax last December.

And after passing a medical at Craven Cottage, the 26-year-old Hungarian has put pen to paper on a contract with the Premier League club.

He told "I arrived home in Hungary on Thursday evening and everything had gone well in England so I signed a one-year long contract with Fulham.

"I attended two training sessions during my eight days at the club and on the last two days I underwent a medical, and I'm happy to say that I passed it.

"I'll go back on Sunday and continue the pre-season with my new team."

Somogyi will provide back-up to regular number one Mark Schwarzer, while reserve keeper David Stockdale has been linked with loan moves to Leeds and Swansea.
