Chris Brunt has thanked West Brom fans have the overwhelming response he has received after leaving the Hawthorns recently.

The veteran ended his spell in the midlands after more than 10 years at the club, earning his third promotion to the Premier League in that time.

The Baggies made him sweat though, dragging themselves over the line with Slaven Bilic having to utilise his more-experienced players in the final games.

Brunt may have left the club, but his legacy will continue and that he could not be more thankful for after looking back at his time at the club.

“Over the last few weeks – ever since I said I was leaving – the response from the supporters has been unbelievable and overwhelming,” he told the Express and Star.

“I do have social media but I keep it private. I tend to just use it for friends and family back home – I don’t use it very often.

“But a lot of stuff gets through to you, people send stuff on and it’s been overwhelming. It’s difficult to put into words just how much I want to thank the fans.”

It was a testament to Brunt that Bilic turned to him when the squad looked nervous in the final game against Queens Park Rangers.

The 35-year-old featured for 19 minutes in the 2-2 draw, and that was actually his longest appearance of the season as the Baggies needed someone to drag them over the finish line.

Brunt would have been perfect for the Baggies squad in-and-around the training ground and dressing rooms, and he deserves every last bit of credit.
