WBA yet to enter negotiations over extension.
West Bromwich Albion midfielder Zoltan Gera has been told that he is free to talk to other clubs after negotiations to extend his current deal have failed to materialise, Sky Sports reports.
The 34-year-old is set to become a free agent this summer but could yet stay with the Baggies as they wait to see how he recovers from a serious knee injury has kept him out for the majority of the season.
The Hungarian international’s agent, Vladan Filipovics, said: “There was an option in Zoltan Gera’s contract which could allow the club until a certain time to extend the player’s contract automatically. But West Brom officials haven’t done this so far which means Gera’s contract expires this summer and he is free to talk with other clubs.
“It doesn’t mean that he will definitely leave. If West Brom leaders want to talk then we can have new negotiations, but from now on we can consider other others too.
“The most important thing for Zoltan is that he recovers from his injury as soon as possible, but he’s a marketable footballer. There are interested clubs, not only from England.”
The player himself would like to stay if possible, and believes fresh terms can be agreed.
“My contract would have been extended automatically if I’d played a certain number of games, but I didn’t have the chance to do so because of my injury in January,” he said.
“My agent has informed me that there will be negotiations with West Brom in the following days.
“My point of view is that I’d like to stay and the feedback I have heard from the club is that they would be open to extending my contract.”
