Hungarian keeper hopeful of pitching up at Fulham

New Fulham boss Martin Jol could be followed to Craven Cottage by keeper Csaba Somogyi who impressed the Cottagers chief during a trial last August when Jol was in charge of Ajax. The Rakospalotai EAC stopper claims Jol promised him that wherever he went, he would try to sign the 26-year-old from the second division club.

Somogyi told Nemzeti Sport: "I'm very happy that Martin Jol was appointed as the new coach of Fulham. I hope I will get the chance to play for him."

His team-mate Gabor Torma has also indicated the goalkeeper's wish to join up with Jol, saying: "I have a great relationship with Martin Jol. When he agreed to join Fulham, I spoke to his agent immediately.

"The Dutch coach wanted to sign Somogyi, but his contract was then terminated.

"Now he stressed it again that he wants Csaba to play in the team where he is coach."
