West Brom's Zoltan Gera is expected to return from injury in time for pre-season training.

The midfielder suffered cruciate ligament damage in an FA Cup match with Queens Park Rangers earlier this month.

The Hungarian international, 33, has made 18 appearances and scored four goals this season.

Head coach Steve Clarke said Gera's surgery had gone "very well", adding: "We would expect him to be up and running for pre-season training."

Gera, who missed the second half of last season with a similar injury, is expected to start his rehabilitation work on his left knee next week.
