Gekas, who was bought by Eintracht Frankfurt from Bayer Leverkusen this summer for a mere 1.0 million Euros, scored six goals in 17 games for Hertha Berlin to finish last season after being sent out on loan in January; the Greece international striker scored 13 goals in 50 Bundesliga games over the course of three seasons while on the books with the Werkself.
