Zoltan Gera has revealed that Fulham's strong desire to sign him was the deciding factor in his move to Craven Cottage.
The Hungarian turned down the offer of a new contract at West Brom to join the Cottagers on a free transfer.
The 29-year-old was also linked with Middlesbrough, Portsmouth, Everton and Bolton and he admits there were a number of interesting offers.
Gera accepts that it was a difficult choice but is delighted to be joining Fulham.
"I'm very happy and untroubled as it's done," he told the Hungarian press.
"There was a huge pressure on me, the decision I had to make affects my whole life.
"I had detailed offers from some teams and it wasn't an easy choice. I told myself I had to go to the club which wanted me the most.
"But this viewpoint didn't ease my situation because luckily there were a couple of teams that gladly wanted me and WBA wanted me to stay too.
"I've chosen Fulham, because I felt they were a keen on me a little bit more than the other clubs."
