Gera: Rumours were easy to ignore

Fulham midfielder Zoltan Gera admits he was not surprised his future was a source of discussion during the final days of the transfer window.

Gera is in the last year of his contract at Craven Cottage and had been linked with a move away from Fulham before Tuesday's deadline.

Liverpool, managed by former Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson, Sunderland and Werder Bremen had all been linked with bids for the 31-year-old.

And, following the Hungarian's brace against Port Vale in the Carling Cup last week, Champions League qualifiers Auxerre were also tipped to make an offer.

However, the window closed with Gera still at Fulham and the former West Brom man never gave his future serious thought.

"I've heard about the transfer gossip about me and I wasn't surprised at all that my 'possible departure' became a topic," Gera told Pepsifoci.

"But, as usual, I don't care at all about these articles.

"There were, and there will be, rumours like this in the future too, but I just want to concentrate on football and I want to prepare for the next game."
