Fulop eyes summer switch

18 Mar 2010 - 08:41:01

Hungarian goalkeeper Marton Fulop has confirmed that he will leave Sunderland at the end of the season, having struggled for first-team opportunities with the Black Cats.

The 26-year-old moved to Wearside, initially on loan, in November 2006 and has since made exactly 50 appearances for the Stadium of Light club.

However, Fulop has grown frustrated by being mainly a back-up to Craig Gordon and accepted that he has to move on, although he has dismissed talk of a loan switch to Wigan Athletic.

He told NSO: "There's no truth that I'll join Wigan on loan. I smiled when I saw the reports.

"But it's sure that I will leave Sunderland this summer. I still don't know where I'd go, but I'm sure that I'd like a change."

Fulop moved to England in the summer of 2004 to join Tottenham Hotspur, while he has also spent time out on loan at Chesterfield, Coventry City, Leicester City and Stoke City.
