Fulop spent four years at the Stadium of Light before moving on to Ipswich, West Brom and then to Greece with Super League club Asteras Tripoli.

His contract there came to an end at the end of the season and the Hungarian now intends to focus on making a full recovery.

Fulop told Sunderland's official website: "I am sure that, after a few months,

I will be ready both physically and mentally to continue playing football.

"What is more, I'd like to train between the treatment courses, as the doctors have said this is fine, and in fact, they heartily recommend it.

"I am very grateful to all the messages and good wishes - it really helps me that many are thinking of me."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
