Plymouth's Akos Buzsaky has told <i>skysports.com</i> that West Ham were watching him.Plymouth midfielder Akos Buzsaky has told skysports.com that West Ham were watching him before he inked a deal at Home Park.
The talented Hungarian, formerly of Porto, penned a three-year deal at the Championship outfit at the close of the season after establishing himself as a favourite with the club's supporters whilst on-loan.
A talented attacking midfielder, Buzsaky concedes that he was aware of West Ham's interest but that he is more than content with his current role at Plymouth.
''At the end of the season West Ham were watching me,'' Buzsaky told skysports.com.
''Though I'm trying to reach the best level, I'm satisfied with my present situation and I'm looking forward to the start of the Championship.
''I don't know the future but I wouldn't like to stop at this stage of football. This year our aim was to avoid relegation and it was very important because the difference is huge between the Championship and League One.
''My aim is to play in The Premiership, who knows it might be here at Plymouth or I'll be playing alongside (Zoltan) Gera.
''In January I found myself immediately in the line-up and I was happy about it - it was important to me.
''My agent in Portugal helped me to go to Plymouth - at first only on-loan.
''Porto asked for a high price for me and this time each of the club's supporters gave one pound to the club because they wanted me to stay permanently.
''By the way I think the Championship is better than the Portuguese first league.''
Buzsaky believes international team-mate Gabor Kiraly will move to a Premiership club following Crystal Palace's relegation but tips Sandor Torghelle to remain at Selhurst Park.
''I think a club from the Premier League is going to sign Gabor Kiraly but Sandor Torghelle will stay at Crystal Palace,'' concluded Buzsaky.
''It's because Andy Johnson is likely to leave South London. I'm looking forward to the games I'll play against my compatriots.''
