Wolves finally bag Hunt from Tigers
Tuesday 22 June 2010
Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced the signing of forward Stephen Hunt from Hull City, for an undisclosed fee.
Hull rejected a £5m bid from Mick McCarthy's side in January, but Hunt later revealed he struck an agreement with chairman Adam Pearson that he would be allowed to leave if the club failed to stay in the Premier League. It is thought the fee is now considerably less than £5m.
The Republic of Ireland international was one of the Tigers' most saleable assets.
Hunt, 28, who has a foot injury which will rule him out of the start of the new season, admits "two or three" clubs were after his signature. "Wolves long-standing interest has helped," he said. "When they came in, and obviously I'm not fit yet, they put so much faith in me and you think, 'To be honest they really want me and I really want to go there'."
