Sunderland goalkeeper Marton Fulop says it would be “an enormous honour” to replace Shay Given at Manchester City on a short-term loan until the end of the season.
The Premier League is expected to grant City’s request to sign a player on loan as their three first team goalkeepers – Given, Stuart Taylor and David Gonzalez – are all injured which leaves only Gunnar Nielsen.
“I can’t confirm officially any approach because personally I haven’t been contacted by anyone,” Fulop told the Sunderland Chronicle. “But if the news is true then I’d go there happily and I would be hungry to play for Manchester City.
“This is an enormous honour for me that my name has been linked with a club which has such a great history.”
City have been looking into possible loan options and Fulop is out of favour at the Stadium of Light.
The 24-year-old has started 12 Premier League games this season, although his last appearance was in the 7-2 thrashing at Chelsea in mid-January.
