A young Jermaine Pennant

Stoke City footballer Jermaine Pennant has allegedly had an operation to get his ears pinned back.

The 28-year-old winger felt embarrassed after he saw a recent picture of himself and had the corrective surgery at a top clinic on Tuesday.

Pennant suffered years of abuse from his football mates, nicknaming him Dumbo after the big-eared elephant in a Disney Movie. When confronted about the surgery Pennant  denied it saying he had just had something removed from his head.

Rumour has it that Pennant will be marrying his model girlfriend this summer, looks like a bit of pre-wedding plastic surgery to us.
