Kurucz eyes regular action

04 July 2011 11:57
West Ham goalkeeper Peter Kurucz is keen to secure regular action after missing all of last season with a serious knee injury.

The Hungary Under-21 international, who moved to Upton Park from Ujpest FC on an initial loan deal in January 2009, injured his anterior cruciate ligament in a reserve outing last August.

Reports in Kurucz's homeland claim that West Brom are considering a summer swoop as they look to bolster their options following the departure of Scott Carson to Bursaspor.

Boaz Myhill is expected to be Baggies boss Roy Hodgson's first choice in the coming season and it remains to be seen if Kurucz would be prepared to move on.

The goalkeeping situation at West Ham remains unclear, with England international Rob Green tipped to depart and Marek Stech, Ruud Boffin and youngster Jake Larkins also on the club's books.

Kurucz, who has been training with Ujpest recently but has ruled out a return to his former club, is focused on getting back out on the pitch after his spell on the sidelines.

The 23-year-old told Nemzeti Sport: "The club signed the Belgian Ruud Boffin when it became clear that I can't play for a while.

"I'm optimistic, but at the moment there is only one thing that I want to do - I want to play."
