Gera in talks over WBA return

Current Baggies boss Roy Hodgson signed the Hungary international

when in charge of Fulham in the summer of 2008. He wants to be

reunited with the 32-year-old and it is understood that initial

talks have taken place. Gera is believed to be willing to return to

West Brom where he was a fans’ favourite. He made 155 appearances

in his four-year spell at The Hawthorns after a £1.5million

move from Ferencvaros in 2004. Hodgson has already signed Ipswich

centre-back Gareth McAuley and Preston full-back Billy Jones since

the end of the season. He is also still interested in Blackpool

midfielder David Vaughan but may lose out in the race to sign

Watford striker Danny Graham, who has also been targeted by Swansea

and Cardiff. Meanwhile, skipper Chris Brunt appears content to

commit his future to the Baggies. He said: “I’ve got a contract at

Albion and until someone tells me otherwise, I’ll be be playing

here. “I enjoy playing for West Brom, have got a decent

relationship with the fans, and know the ins and outs of the club.”
