Hungarian wide player Halmosi was briefly City’s record signing when he joined the Tigers in July 2008 for a £2m fee. Signed as a key part of Phil Brown’s Premier League squad, Halmosi was a disappointment and rarely impressed, and was soon confined to the subs bench and then the reserves. After a second similarly impact-free season, Halmosi was loaned back to his home town club Szombathelyi Haladas at the start of his third season, before leaving the club permanently in January 2011.
Born in Szombathely, Hungary’s oldest city located near the Austrian border, Halmosi had a century of matches for his home town club before he signed for Grazer AK, historically the Austrian city’s bigger club. A year later he returned to Hungary and signed for Debrecen. In January 2007 he began a loan spell at Plymouth Argyle, which was made a permanent deal the following May. After one highly impressive season at Home Park the Tigers swooped for his services.
Halmosi returned to Szombathely in January 2011 and saw out the remainder of his career at the club where his career started, playing his last game in 2019.
Halmosi was a regular Hungarian international following his senior debut in 2002, amassing 36 senior caps alongside 2 under-21 caps.
