Marton Fulop has complted a loan move to Championship
table-toppers Stoke City.
Roy Keane confirmed earlier today he was prepared to allow the
Hungarian to join the Potters.
And Fulop this afternoon completed a loan deal to City until the
end of the current season. Sunderland can re-call the 24-year-old
at any time.
Fulop spent the first half of the 2007-08 campaign on loan with
Leicester, originally on a season-long loan deal, before Keane
recalled him in January.
He played 24 league games (as well as three league cup) at the
Walker's Stadium, under four different managers - Martin Allen
(who signed him), Gary Megson, Gerry Taggart (caretaker) and Ian
Fulop joins former Sunderland players Liam Lawrence, Rory Delap
and Dominic Matteo at the Britannia Stadium.
Manager Tony Pulis also took right-back Stephen Wright there for
a four-month loan spell during the firs half of the season.
