Bayer Leverkusen loaned the striker out to Portsmouth in 2009 before another loan deal took him to Hertha Berlin last season.

The former Greece International signed a two-year deal with the Eagles in the summer transfer window after Leverkusen coach Jupp Heynckes deemed the striker as surplus to requirements at the BayArena.

Gekas told Bild newspaper: "It was Skibbe that made me move to this club.

"I am happy that things went that way for me this summer.

"We have made a difficult start to this season, but the recent victory against Nuremburg was extremely important for us.

"We have to build on this now by starting a winning streak."

Gekas signed a two year contract at the Commerzbank-Arena during the summer and has already netted an impressive four goals in six appearances for the club.
