Zoltan Gera could leave West Brom as a free agent this summer but he hopes to sign an extension at the Hawthorns.
Gera is keen to remain with the club but discussions have been delayed due to a serious knee injury, which has kept the 34-year-old on the sidelines since January.
Gera insists his preference would be to remain with the Baggies and hopes to agree new terms in the coming days.
He told Nemzeti Sport: “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.
“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.”
However, Gera’s agent Vladan Filipovics has indicated that there is plenty of interest in the veteran midfielder should West Brom decide against offering the Hungarian an extension.
Filipovics told NSO.hu: “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.”
