Hunt suffers broken ankle

Jack Hunt is set for a four-month spell on the sidelines

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 Huddersfield 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 south 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."
