The Slovakian midfielder has joined Bryan Robson's side from Artmedia Bratislava but, having a poor grasp of English, may struggle to settle in at first.
Gera knows exactly what he is going through and says that he is trying to help him settle in to life in England.
"He is a very kind guy and I know what he is feeling," Gera told his own personal website.
"Jan arrived alone and hardly speaks English so I'm trying to give him a helping hand. I fetched him from training and I showed him the city.
"I have found out that his wife speaks Hungarian very well so we can help them a lot in the beginning.
"It may happen that he'll be looking for a flat near to my place, I've already shown him the district.
"I still can't say anything about his football because I haven't seen the Artmedia games and it would be hard to create an opinion about him after only a few training sessions.
"I don't know when he will make his debut but I wouldn't mind playing with him in his first game."
