Midfield ace considers U-turn about Cottage future

Fulham midfielder Zoltan Gera may now have a future at Craven Cottage following the arrival of Martin Jol as the club's new manager.

The 32-year-old Hungarian international had fallen down the pecking order under former boss Mark Hughes, and looked set to leave the Cottagers this summer.

However, after Hughes' acrimonious departure last week and consequently the appointment of Jol, Gera could now make a complete u-turn once he has held discussions with the former Ajax and Tottenham manager.

Jol is a known admirer of the former West Bromwich Albion playmaker, as it was he who first attempted to bring Gera to England from Ferencvaros during his previous spell in the Barclays Premier League with Spurs.


Baggies boss Roy Hodgson, whom Gera has also worked under during his Fulham tenure had been hoping to agree terms on a deal that would see the midfielder return to the Hawthorns when his Cottagers contract expires at the end of the month.

But Gera's agent Vladan Filipovioc, told Hungarian newspaper Nemzeti Sport: "Martin Jol knows and likes Gera's style. When he was manager of Tottenham, he wanted to sign Gera. He would probably like to work with him now.

"Until Gera signs his new contract, anything can happen. It could be that he even stays at Fulham."
