Crystal Palace deadline day signing Jack Hunt suffers broken ankle
£2m signing will not play again this year after training ground incident
Wednesday 11 September 2013
Crystal Palace's recent signing Jack Hunt, yet to kick a ball for his new club, has been ruled out for the rest of the year after breaking his ankle in training.
Palace paid a reported £2million for Hunt on transfer deadline day, but the 22-year-old right-back faces up to four months on the sidelines after sustaining the injury only seven days after joining the London club.
Hunt wrote on Twitter: "Absolutely devastated to have broken my ankle in training (on Monday).
"Got to take the positives, clean break and no op needed."
Hunt, a product of the Huddersfield academy, added: "Massive thanks to everyone at CPFC. Chairman, manager, coaching staff, physios and the lads have been unreal."
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
