Hungarian goalkeeper Peter Kurucz is set to join the Hammers on a permanent basis following a successful loan spell.

20-year-old Kurucz - who was on duty for Alex Dyer's youngsters in Hong Kong at the weekend - is set to land a four year deal having impressed since signing on loan at the beginning of February.

West Ham took the player on loan initially with view to a permanent deal - an option which, according to Kurucz's current club Ujpest FC, the Hammers have triggered.

A statement on the club's website read: "The talented ┌jpest goalkeeper will continue his career with the London club. The player's performance in recent months has convinced the Premier League club to offer a four-year contract to Peter."

Kurucz is set to replace the outgoing reserve 'keeper Jan Lastuvka, who returned to his club last week having completed his season-long loan spell.

Meanwhile striker Tony Stokes - currently on loan with Ujpest as part of the deal which brought Kurucz to London - has revealed that he would like to extend his stay in Hungary.

Talking to Ujpest FC Online, the 22-year-old Academy product said: "I feel like I could fit in the team, and I feel very well in Budapest. Hungarian football is good."
