Ipswich keeper Fulop excited after making West Brom debut

Ipswich Town goalkeeper Marton Fulop is excited about his loan move to West Bromwich Albion.

The Hungary international made his Baggies debut as a 67th-minute substitute in yesterday's 1-1 pre-season draw with Parma - less than 24 hours after signing from Ipswich on a 12-month Hawthorns deal.

And he is delighted to have made a return to the Barclays Premier League in what has been a whirlwind switch.

"It was very quick," said the former Sunderland custodian to the WBA website.

"It was first mentioned on Tuesday and from then it all went through very quickly. But I am delighted with the move.

"I am very pleased to be back in the Premier League and with such a great club as West Bromwich Albion. It was a straightforward decision. I needed a new challenge and West Brom fitted the bill."

The 28-year-old keeper added: "I know Ben Foster is the No.1 at the club and I came here to help the team and to help us achieve a great season.

"If I get the opportunity I want to take it but I also want to support Ben and help him play really well for this club.

"It's never nice to be on the bench but when I came to West Brom I knew that Ben would start the season.

"I know he is a very good goalkeeper and I accepted that - but I still want to push him for a first-team place and hopefully that will help him as well."
