Athletic welcomed Hungarian defender Zsolt Baboss to New Home Park this morning after the teenager completed a surprise £370,000 move from Finnish side FC Wilenius last night.

Speaking of the signing, Marcus said, “Zsolt is definitely one for the future. He’s a bit raw round the edges at the moment, but it’s abundantly clear that he’s got potential. We can work on that in training and I think that, in time, he’ll be a very good player for us”.

He continued, “The fact that we’ve got also got Attila [Gyöngyösi] here too will hopefully also help him settle in quickly”.

Zsolt will go into the squad for the forthcoming Scottish Cup tie with Bams XI.
