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.

There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
