McCarthy Confirms Hunt Signing New Deal
Monday, 30th Jun 2014 11:34
Town boss Mick McCarthy has confirmed that winger Stephen Hunt is rejoining the Blues on a one-year deal, as TWTD revealed last week.
Speaking ahead of pre-season getting underway at Playford Road this morning, McCarthy said: “Hunty’s coming back, we’re re-signing Hunty, that’s been agreed, a one-year deal.
“I’m delighted with that not only because of what he brings on the pitch but what he brings off it, he’s a great character around the place.
“Others, we’ll just wait and see what happens. We’re talking to people but they’re all doing their recruitment as well. We all want to get the best players for the best deals and the players all want to get the best clubs for the best deals, so there’s a bit of chat going on with a few of them.”
Hunt wasn't amongst the players taking the traditional run around the training ground and seems likely to join up with the squad later in the week.
Meanwhile, another of last season's loanees Paul Green is interesting Rotherham, who have already signed former Blues Frazer Richardson and Scott Loach.

The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
