West Brom head coach Steve Clarke is optimistic midfielder Zoltan Gera will be back for the start of pre-season training after undergoing surgery on his knee.
Gera suffered ligament damage during the FA Cup clash with QPR at Loftus Road earlier this month. The Hungarian international sustained a similar setback last season, which caused him to miss the second half of the campaign.
Clarke said: "Zoltan has had his operation, it went very well and his rehab starts this week. We would expect him to be up and running in time for pre-season training."
