Current Baggies boss Roy Hodgson signed the Hungary international when in charge of Fulham in the summer of 2008.

He wants to be reunited with the 32-year-old and it is understood that initial talks have taken place.

Gera is believed to be willing to return to West Brom where he was a fans' favourite. He made 155 appearances in his four-year spell at the Hawthorns after a £1.5 million move from Ferencvaros in 2004.

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.
