Metz have swooped to sign West Bromwich Albion and Rangers target Szabolcs Huszti.

The Hungary international has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at Stade St Symphorien following his departure from Ferencvaros on a free transfer.

The 22-year-old midfielder was a target of Baggies boss Bryan Robson while Scottish champions Rangers were showing interest in the Eastern European wing back.

Greek giants Panathinaikos were also mentioned in connection with Huszti, but the player has opted to continue his career in France's Ligue 1 with Metz.

Metz boss Joel Muller, meanwhile, is also thought to be trialing an attacking midfielder in the form of Zambia international Christopher Katongo.

Katongo had been plying his trade in South Africa with Jomo Cosmos, whom he joined from Zambian club Green Buffaloes.
