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."
