Tamás Kádár (born 14 March 1990 in Veszprém) is a Hungarian footballer, currently playing for Diósgyőri VTK. He is a defender and is equally capable at centre-back or left-back. He made his debut for Zalaegerszegi TE at the age of 16 and has since gone on to win Hungary U-21 honours.

Club career[edit]

Zalaegerszeg[edit]

Kádár made his debut for Zalaegerszegi TE in 2006.[1] He was offered trials by Premier League clubs Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United in December 2007.[1][2] He made 14 league appearances, four domestic cup appearances and two Intertoto Cup appearances for Zalaegerszegi TE.

Newcastle United[edit]

Kádár's transfer was allowed due to Hungary being within the European Union. Normally a player must be 18 years old at minimum, but within the European Union players could be transferred at the age of 16.[3]

Local news reports in Newcastle stated that Kádár had attended a reserve match at Newcastle on 8 January 2008, and would sign for the club in the coming days. Kádár became the 3rd youngster to sign for Newcastle in the January transfer window following the signings of Ben Tozer and Wesley Ngo Baheng. After some hold-ups as a result of Sam Allardyce's sacking, the deal was confirmed on 18 January, the same day that Kevin Keegan was unveiled to the press for his second stint as manager.

During the 2008–09 season, Kádár was mostly plying his trade in the reserves but appeared on the bench as an unused substitute for Newcastle's home league match with Liverpool and the FA Cup 3rd round game with Hull City.

On 21 January 2009 he suffered a broken leg in a reserve match against Sunderland, ruling him out for six months.[4]

On 11 July 2009 he returned to action for Newcastle United, helping in their victory 3–0 over Shamrock Rovers. This was Newcastle's first pre-season match of the 2009–10 season. He made his full first team debut in the 4–3 victory over Huddersfield Town in the League Cup in August, before making his league debut on 31 August as part of a 1–0 home win against Leicester City. Although behind Steven Taylor and Fabricio Coloccini in the pecking order, he has turned in some strong performances whenever new manager Chris Hughton played him, especially when Taylor and Coloccini were out injured during various times of the season.[5] In the 2010-2011 season, he was given a chance in the opening rounds of the League Cup playing in central defence for their round two clash with minnows Accrington Stanley. Newcastle won 3-2 thanks to goals from Peter Lovenkrands, Shola Ameobi and Ryan Taylor. In the 2011–12 season of the Premier League Kádár became close to the first squad after the injuries of Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor.[6][7][8]

He was released by Newcastle United on 1 June 2012.[9]

Huddersfield Town (loan)[edit]

On 10 January 2011, Kádár signed on loan at Football League One side Huddersfield Town, managed by Lee Clark, who was a coach at Newcastle, when he originally signed for the Magpies.[10][11] He made his debut in the 3–2 win over Plymouth Argyle at the Galpharm Stadium, the following day.[12] Following an injury picked up in the game at Walsall, he returned to Newcastle.

Roda JC Kerkrade[edit]

After a successful trial period, Kádár was officially signed by Dutch Eredivisie club Roda JC Kerkrade on 7 August 2012.[13][14] Although in the 2012-13 season of the Eredivisie Kádár played 11 matches, he wanted to get more possibilities to play therefore Roda loaned to the Hungarian club Diósgyőr for the rest of the 2012-13 season.

Diósgyőr[edit]

On 3 June 2013, Kádár was signed by Hungarian League club Diósgyőri VTK after playing 13 matches and scoring 1 goal in the 2012–13 season of the Hungarian League on loan from Roda JC Kerkade.[15]

International career[edit]

On 12 May 2008, Kádár received his first call up to the Hungary senior squad, though he did not make an appearance. He was recalled to the U21 side for several 2011 European Championship qualifiers. On 17 November 2010 Kádár played his first match in the national team against Lithuania at the Stadion Sóstói in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. The final result was 2-0 to Hungary. He also played in the match that resulted in the 5-0 victory over Liechtenstein at the Puskás Ferenc Stadium in Hungary. On 16 October 2012 Hungary battled back to beat Turkey at home 3-1 (in Budapest). Kádár gave an assist to Szalai which resulted in the second Hungarian goal.[16][17]
