"This is a big blow for them and us, but we hope to see them back in action as soon as possible.

Morrison to discuss terms on a new Albion deal .
Long-serving West Brom man James Morrison is set to discuss terms over a new deal with the Midlands club, according to Birmingham Live. The 32-year old Scotland international is currently out of contract with the Baggies, having had his previous deal expire at the end of last month. Albion boss Darren Moore told Morrison that to take his West Brom career into it’s 12th season, he would need to prove his fitness, having missed much of last season through an Achilles issue. The midfielder has impressed in pre-season, and hasn’t shown any hints of a lingering issue after recovering from his lengthy injury sustained last October on international duty. Morrison scored against Barnsley on Tuesday night, his second start of Albion’s four friendlies so far, and his showings have evidently earned him a spot in Moore’s squad for this season. Moore has previously shown a ruthless streak when it comes to offering experienced players new deals, having already let Claudio Yacob and Gareth McAuley move on this summer.
