West Bromwich Albion have begun negotiations about bringing out of contract Fulham midfielder Zoltan Gera back to the Hawthorns.

Baggies manager Roy Hodgson signed the 32-year-old for the Cottagers when he was in charge there in 2008.

He wants to be reunited with the Hungary international and believes the fans will welcome him back to the Midlands according to the Independent.

Gera made 155 appearances in his four-year spell at the Hawthorns after a £1.5million move from Ferencvaros in 2004.

He was sent off in his last appearance for Fulham against Arsenal after scoring only one goal in 27 appearances last season.

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 City.
