Csaba Somogyi joins Fulham

Fulham have confirmed Hungarian goalkeeper Csaba Somogyi as Martin Jol's first signing, paving the way for No 2 David Stockdale to leave Craven Cottage on loan this summer. The 25-year-old former Darlington keeper, who was named in Fabio Capello's England squad last season, has welcomed a switch to Barclays Premier League newcomers Swansea. He said at the weekend: 'They've just come up. It would suit me down to the ground. On his way: David Stockdale could be heading for a loan switch to Swansea following the arrival of new boy Somogyi 'I think (Jol) might stay with Mark (Schwarzer), which is understandable, so it might be a chance for me to go out on loan.' 'They've signed a new goalkeeper (Csaba Somogyi), so hopefully that paves the way for a loan move. I want to play games.' Somogyi, 26, will act as cover for first choice Mark Schwarzer signing a one-year deal on a free transfer. First choice: Martin Jol's first signing Somogyi will act as No 1 Mark Schwarzer's understudy The ex-Rakospalotai EAC shot-stopper initially impressed new boss Jol during a trial at the Dutchman's former club Ajax in 2010 and won his contract at Fulham after a similar period last week. And should six-foot three-inch Somogyi fare well in the Premier League Fulham have the option to extend his terms for a further season until 2013.  Fulham keeper Stockdale hoping for loan move as Swansea prepare swoopFulham target former Liverpool defender Riise as Jol plans family reunionJust gr-eight: Newcastle and Arsenal paired together to kick off televised Premier League clashesAll the latest Fulham news, features and opinionCLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR FREE FANTASY FOOTBALL GAME
