Zoltan Gera: Closing on a return to fitness following injury nightmare

The midfielder recently agreed a new one-year contract at The Hawthorns, having technically become a free agent at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

He is delighted to have been offered the opportunity to prolong his career with the Baggies and is determined to repay the faith shown in him.

It has been a frustrating couple of years for Gera, who is now in his second spell with West Brom.

Knee injuries have severely restricted his playing time, but the 34-year-old is edging closer to full match fitness and hopes he will soon be back in Steve Clarke's thoughts.

Gera posted on his Facebook account: "It's a super feeling (to be back in training). I have been looking forward to this day for a long time. I had surgery exactly seven months ago.

"I hope I'll be ready to play in three to four weeks, but I won't hurry."

aha, as a German supporting United I can only agree with your great insight in German football! No idea why, but I HATE Eintracht Braunschweig and please don't ever place a bet on Leverkusen, they mess up my ticket every time!

VG with Rooney up top. The 3 in MF being Blind, Herrera and Mata. Young on LW and Di Maria or Januzaj on the RW. You know it makes sense.
