Fulham midfielder Zoltan Gera has rejected talk of a move to Liverpool after Hungary’s 2-1 defeat to England at Wembley.

Liverpool, now managed by former Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson, have been linked with a number of Fulham players including Gera.

But the Hungarian, who impressed last season in the West London side’s route to the Europa League final, has played down the rumours.

He said: “I do not know anything about this. I was happy at Fulham with Roy, but he has moved on to Liverpool and I am still at Fulham.

“Mark Hughes is a very good manager, we have had some great training sessions. He wants a different Fulham, and I think the team will be capable of these new things.”

Liverpool have today confirmed the signing of holding midfielder Christian Poulsen and are now searching for an attacking midfield player to complment their attack of Joe Cole, Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.

Gera, though, will be wary that a move to Merseyside could harm his chances of playing regular first team football.

He also admitted he wants to carry on playing week in, week out and is confident about next season.

“Everybody expects a lot from Fulham, but we need to stay on our level, with a target of the top 10.

“If we can do that, it will be great for us. I would like to play as I did last season, want to improve and be better. I know it is difficult to play in the first 11, but I will do my best,” he added.

German side Werder Bremen have also emerged as contenders for the Hungarian’s signature but Gera is settled in England.
