The 33-year-old - who will be 34 on Monday - injured his left knee in the Baggies' FA Cup tie at QPR in January and ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.

Gera's contract expires this summer and West Brom have the option to extend it by another year.

"Our coach continuously backs me by saying that he'd like me to play here next season. I'd like it too," Gera told www.origo.hu.

"I hope when it's time we'll agree and I can sign a new contract with the club. I will do my best and I want to show in the training centre that I would like to stay.

"We're in the top 10 and it's a success although it seems to be sure we missed the chance to play in a European cup in the following season."

Gera says his rehab is going well, and added: "I'm fine, my rehabilitation goes as it should. My legs are getting stronger and I can't feel any pain.

"I can put weight on my legs progressively and I'm in good hands. I can do more day by day to be ready to train again and I enjoy this.

"I'd like to be back very much for the summer pre-season which is realistically a bit early but my plan is to be healthy for that time.

"I won't speed my rehab up, when my doctor says I can train I'll attend training from that time."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
