A look at the Albion captain's career.

The Catalan right-back made one appearance for Espanyol in September 2001, and after stints with Gimnastic de Tarragona and UE Lleida, he joined UD Almeria and helped the club get promoted into La Liga.

In June 2009 he joined Valencia and made 33 league appearances in two seasons. Bruno scored his first goal for Brighton against Bolton Wanderers in November 2012 and was part of the Albion side that made it to both the 2012/13 and 2013/14 play-off semi finals.

The Spaniard played every single league fixture in Albion's 2015/16 campaign, before being given the role as club captain after Gordon Greer's departure at the end of the season.

Bruno's run of 74 successive league starts came to end against Sheffield Wednesday during the 2016/17 season, but the skipper returned to fitness and helped Albion win promotion to the Premier League.

The Albion skipper made 25 appearances for the Seagulls during the club's 2017/18 campaign, and came back into the side towards the end of the season to help his team-mates to important clean sheets against Burnley and Manchester United.

He continues to be a regular fixture in the side, and along with Glenn Murray, he broke a Premier League record for the oldest duo to combine for a goal.

They broke the record set by Manchester United legends Ryan Giggs (35y 273d) and Paul Scholes (36y 260d), after their 2010 goal against Newcastle United at Old Trafford was bettered.
