An Albion stalwart, Chris Brunt has clocked up over 400 appearances for the Baggies during his 12 years at The Hawthorns.

Albion's Northern Ireland international has been a mainstay under nine different managers/head coaches since joining for £3million from Sheffield Wednesday in August 2007, having started his career at Middlesbrough.

Signed as a left-winger, Brunt has occupied every position in midfield, whilst also featuring as a left-back for large periods. Chris celebrated a decade of representing the Throstles in the summer of 2017.
 
Brunt was an integral part of Tony Mowbray's midfield in 2008, also featuring in the FA Cup semi-final that year - his goal in the 2-0 title-clinching win at QPR coming just days after the birth of his first child Charlie.
 
In 2008/09, he was named Albion's official Player of the Year, as voted for by the management staff and his team-mates - beating off competition from Scotland international James Morrison and Slovenia skipper Robert Koren, who finished as runners-up.
 
In 2011, Brunt was named as Albion's captain by Roy Hodgson following the departure of Scott Carson.
 
Cruelly denied an appearance with Northern Ireland at the 2016 Euros because of injury, Brunt made an impressive return to action and helped spark Albion's best form of the 2016/17 campaign - as well as registering the supporters' Goal of the Season for a memorable strike against Sunderland at The Hawthorns.
