Fulham midfielder unaware of interest in him

Zoltan Gera has admitted that he has heard nothing about the interest of rival teams regarding his future at Fulham. The Hungary international has caught the attention of a number of clubs over the past few weeks as he prepares to face England in a friendly international on Wednesday night. Premier League rivals Liverpool appear to be leading the chase for the 31-year-old former West Brom man as they seek some experienced back-up in their midfield. Werder Bremen have also shown an interest after Gera netted an impressive 12-minute hat-trick against the German club in a pre-season friendly last Saturday. Gera, though, says that the recent interest is news to him, telling MTI: "This is the first time I've heard about the interest of these teams for me."

Face to face

The Fulham star is looking forward to coming face to face with team-mate Bobby Zamora at Wembley. "Bobby told me after the Werder Bremen game that he will see me at Wembley on Wednesday, though I wasn't sure at that time whether he will be included in the England squad. "When the final squad was announced, I called him and told him that he should ask Steven Gerrard to pass him the ball and not me," joked Gera. "We enjoy playing together as we play well together on the pitch but I'm delighted that he's finally been called up."
