Player Profile

The Hungarian striker was signed by Nigel Pearson in the summer of 2012 in what looked like a straight replacement for target man Steve Howard.

The tall striker arrived at the King Power Stadium at the age of just 22 but having already had the experience of playing in France, Germany and England. He'd played a full season in the Championship with Portsmouth, scoring five goals in 29 appearances, the season before signing on as a Fox.

Born in Budapest, he played for a local club at youth level before going on to feature in the youth set-up at Ferencvaros. This got him a move to France, with AS Nancy, before he played for Werder Bremen in Germany and arriving in England, at Fratton Park, in 2011.

Nigel Pearson saw enough of him from his stint with Pompey to warrant a move to City after he signed on a free transfer after leaving the south coast club after just one year. He's also won a bronze medal with the under-20 Hungary squad at the 2009 FIFA under-20 World Cup and is has also played for their U21s.
