West Bromwich Albion are desperately saddened to learn of the passing of former player Paul Holmes, aged 56.

The defender played for the club from 1996 to 1999, making more than 100 appearances.

He came through at Doncaster Rovers before spells with Torquay, Birmingham City and Everton - who he left to join the Baggies.

Holmes then finished his professional career back in Devon after departing The Hawthorns.

The club will pay tribute to Paul in the lead up to kick-off of Sunday's game against Southampton. The players will also wear black armbands as a mark of respect.

Everyone at Albion sends their deepest condolences to his family, friends and loved ones at this incredibly sad time.
