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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
