The highly-rated Hungarian has joined the Potters on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent move in the summer, and Fulop admits he would welcome that.

"According to the contract, I'm going to stay here until the end of the season but if the club reach their goals and I feel as good as my first impression was, then I may stay here for a longer period," he said.

"The team's goal is promotion so it appears to be much more different for me to play here than fighting relegation with Leicester."

The 24-year-old now has Steve Simonsen to battle it out with for a starting role at the Britannia Stadium, but the former Tottenham stopper is confident he will soon establish himself as the Potters' number one.

"I'm extremely happy that I don't have to sit on the bench and I can prove my abilities on the pitch," he told Nemzeti Sport.

"I want first-team football because I can only be in the Hungarian squad with regular football.

"Manager Tony Pulis assured me that he brought me here to be first-choice keeper."
