West Brom chasing Zenit winger Szabolcs Huszti

West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed interest in Zenit St Petersburg winger Szabolcs Huszti.

Hodgson is keen to strengthen his wide options in midfield, with Zoltan Gera and skipper Chris Brunt both long-term injury casualties.

Hodgson said: "Huszti is a player who has had a very good career with Metz, Hannover and now St Petersburg, who have been the top side in Russia for two or three years.

"He is a player who comes with a very good CV, a type of player we don't really have at the club, not least with Gera and Brunt injured long term.

"We hope we can finalise the deal with the club and the player himself and he will be a good addition to our squad for the final 16 league games if it all gets tied up."
