Republic of Ireland defender Dara O'Shea has been ruled out for four to six months with a fractured ankle.

The West Brom 22-year-old suffered the injury after a tangle with Diogo Jota during the first half of last Wednesday's 2-1 loss to Portugal in Faro.

The Baggies confirmed the news on Tuesday, with boss Valerien Ismael commenting: "It's sad news for us that Dara has suffered this injury. He's been excellent for us in the opening games of the season, and he is a very professional young player.

"I have been very impressed with Dara since I arrived here, and I know he will dedicate himself to the rehabilitation required to get back to full fitness.

"Fortunately, the club reacted very quickly to the injury and we have signed Kean Bryan to strengthen our defensive options during Dara's injury and beyond."
