Egypt and West Bromwich defender Ahmed Hegazi underwent surgery on his ankle Wednesday.

The 28-year-old defender said on his Instagram account Thursday that the surgery, which was postponed owing to last season's matches with the club and the national team, was successful and he will be ready for next season soon.

Hegazi joined West Bromwich Albion, which played in the English Premier League, on a loan deal coming from Ahly in July 2017, before the English team bought Hegazi in January 2018.

The former Ahly player won with the Egyptian giants two league titles, an Egyptian Cup, and an Egyptian Super Cup, after appearing in the red jersey in 56 matches.

Meanwhile, the national team defender played 85 matches and scored three goals with Albion, which plays in EFL Championship, the second-highest overall in the English football league system after the Premier League.
