Varga, 25, is a defensive midfielder and has won 21 caps for his country, for whom he has often played at right-back having made his debut against Portugal in 2009.

He has won three Hungarian titles, two Hungarian Cups and two Hungarian Super Cups in his homeland, winning the country's best newcomer in 2009 and Debrecen's Player of the Year in 2012.
