West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the departures of out-of-contract duo Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe.

Sessegnon, who is soon to turn 32, made a total of 92 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals, since arriving at The Hawthorns in 2013.

Anichebe, 28, made 63 outings for the Baggies and found the net nine times following his arrival at the club in the same summer window.

The two lads worked really hard for me and were as good as gold. Everybody at the Club wishes them all the best in their future careers.

– Tony Pulis, head coach

Meanwhile, the Club remain in discussions with James Morrison regarding a new contract.

West Brom midfielder Chris Brunt will be out for six months with a serious knee injury - ruling him out of Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 campaign.

The 31-year-old was carried off on Saturday after landing awkwardly in the first half of Albion's 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.

Scans showed he ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and he underwent surgery to repair the damage on Thursday, meaning he will miss the rest of the Barclays Premier League season as well as the summer's European Championships.

Pulis has come under fire from fans after Saturday's 3-1 FA Cup defeat at Reading and tempers boiled over when Chris Brunt was hit by a coin thrown from the Albion section following the final whistle.

He told the BBC: "Let's get through the season, let's sit down and see where we go from there. The most important thing is to try and keep the club up in the Premier League.

"I'll sit down with Jeremy and we'll take it from there."

Pulis has been in charge since January 2015, replacing Alan Irvine, signing a two-and-a-half year deal. Albion are 14th in the Barclays Premier League but have won just twice in their last 11 games in all competitions
