Zoltan Gera and John Pantsil are among the prominent names to have been released by Fulham at the end of their contracts.
Hungarian international Gera has been heavily linked with a return to West Bromwich Albion, who are now managed by former Fulham boss Roy Hodgson. Hodgson brought Gera to Craven Cottage in June 2008 and the classy midfielder thrived under his management, helping the Whites reach the 2010 Europa League final. Gera made 120 appearances for Fulham, scoring seventeen goals.
Pantsil will leave Fulham at the end of the month after the club opted not to extend his current deal. The Ghanaian defender fell well down Mark Hughes’ pecking order after a succession of early season errors. The right back, signed in a double deal from West Ham with Bobby Zamora, made 92 appearances at Craven Cottage and was a firm favourite with the Fulham fans.
Diomansy Kamara, who has seen first-team opportunities limited in recent months, has also been released. The Senegalese striker scored 18 goals in 68 appearances for Fulham but was largely used as a substitute last season once Bobby Zamora and Mousa Dembele returned to full fitness. Kamara had spent time on loan at Celtic and Leicester City in the last two campaigns.
American striker Eddie Johnson has also been released – having made only ten appearances since signing from the Kansas City Wizards in January 2008 – alongside young midfielder Matt Saunders.
