Former Coventry City goalkeeper Marton Fulop has been cleared to continue his playing career.
Fulop’s tumour was discovered back in April whilst undergoing treatment for a seperate arm problem.
The keeper, who had a loan spell from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in 2005 made 31 appearances for the Sky Blues before making noise about a permanent move to the Ricoh Arena, only to eventually join Sunderland, initially on loan, before signing for the Black Cats permanently.
Since, Fulop has turned out for Leicester City, Stoke City, Manchester City, Ipswich Town and West Bromwich Albion in England, and most recently Greek Super League side Asteras Tripoli before his contract expired at the end of the latest campaign.
Following the successful operation, Fulop is now hoping to return to full match fitness and find a new club to add to the 24 international caps he already has for Hungary, but he will still receive regular medical check-ups over the next five years to ensure no complications occur.
