Albion bag Gera
West Brom new signing Zoltan Gera
Gera becomes Baggies third signing in as many days
West Brom have swooped to sign Hungary captain Zoltan Gera from Ferencvaros in a 1.5m deal.

Gera, 25, becomes Albion's third signing in as many days following Kanu and Jonathan Greening.

Baggies boss Gary Megson said: "I'm pleased Zoltan has agreed to join us, he wants to prove himself in England.

"He is an all-round midfielder who has an eye for getting forward. Hopefully he will prove to be what we think he can be," he told the club website.

Megson added: "He will have to adjust to a different way of life and learn the language but he will be given that time."

Gera joins Albion fresh from clinching a domestic league and cup double with Ferencvaros.

Megson beat off interest from clubs such as Lens, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Spartak Moscow to clinch Gera's services.

Gera also reportedly turned down a lucrative offer from Turkish outfit Galatasaray to pursue his dream of playing in the Premiership.

Megson hopes Kanu will lift Baggies
