West Bromwich Albion have failed in their attempts to sign Ferencvaros
midfielder Szabolcs Huszti before the transfer window closed on Tuesday.
The Baggies were one of the busiest clubs on deadline day following the
signings of Romanian Cosmin Contra and Japanese star Junichi Inamoto, but
their hopes of signing Hungary international Huszti fell through after both
clubs failed to agree a fee for the 21-year-old on Sunday.
West Brom made a late move for Huszti after Ferencvaros failed to reach the
UEFA Champions League after losing their qualifying tie to Czech side Sparta
Prague last week.
According to reports in Hungary, The Baggies are thought to have tabled a
bid of £1.5 million for the youngster, having completed a similar deal with
Ferencvaros in the summer for fellow midfielder Zoltan Gera.
Despite staying at his club for the moment, Huszti's contract at the
Budapest club is due to expire at the end of June next year and Ferencvaros
may be keen to receive a suitable fee for the player before his deal ends.
Huszti, who made headlines with two goals in Hungary's convincing 3-0 win
over Scotland last month, revealed his desire to play in England at some
"I wouldn't deny that I'm not interested in this possibility," Huszti told
Hungarian daily Nemzeti Sport.
"I will only concentrate on the future. I'm a professional, so as long as
I'm contracted to Ferencvaros, I have to do my best at my present club.
"If I succeed, then I hope to get the chance to sign in England."
West Brom are likely to take a closer look at the talented youngster when
Ferencvaros face English Championship side Millwall in the first round of
the Uefa Cup later this month.
