Premier League ace ruled out of Euro 2016

Brunt was due to be guest of honour at a Hawthorns dinner tonight to salute players who have made 300 or more appearances for Albion, but he will miss the event as he recovers from his operation in Lyon.

Club doctor Mark Gillett said: “We are hopeful that Chris will be nearing the completion of his rehabilitation towards the start of next season.”

Brunt joined West Brom from Sheffield Wednesday in 2007 for £3m and has twice been promoted to the Premier League with the club.

He served as captain under Roberto Di Matteo, Steve Clarke, Pepe Mel and Tony Pulis before Pulis handed the armband to new signing Darren Fletcher last season.
