Crystal Palace defender Jack Hunt went online to thank the support of the club after his broken ankle ruled him out of up to three months of the Premier League season.

The summer signing from Huddersfield Town sustained the injury in training on Sunday, but remained upbeat despite not having kicked a ball in a competitive game for his new club.

He wrote: “Absolutely devastated to have broken my ankle in training yesterday. There was no-one around me, just an accident.

“Got to take the positives, clean break and no op needed. I will do everything I can to be back playing as soon as possible.”

He added: "Massive thanks to everyone at CPFC. Chairman, manager and coaching staff, physios and the lads have been unreal.

“Life throws challenges at you. It’s about how you come back from them.”

Meanwhile, Jonny Williams is expecetd to be out for up to three months after sustaining ankle ligament damage while playing for Wales in the 2-1 defeat to Macedonia last week.

The 19-year-old play-maker has been troubled by injuries on international duty, having broken his leg playing for Wales U21s in 2011.
