Southampton and Stoke Bosman target wins penalty ... tells ref to change his mind

Werder Bremen Training

Aaron Hunt has committed a wonderful act of fair-play in Werder Bremen's game against Nurnberg last night.

The Bundesliga sure is a hunting ground for many Premier League sides - and this summer should see plenty of clubs chasing Werder Bremen midfielder Aaron Hunt.

He has refused to confirm his intention to stay in the Bundesliga next season and not surprisingly for a man with an English mother whose grandfather went to the same school as Sir Bobby Charlton the Premier League is a potential destination.

Hunt is out of contract this summer and Bremen obviously want to secure a longer term deal for the 26-year-old - but he is believed to want a move to another leage and he has interest in England from Southampton, Stoke City and recently Newcastle United are also being named as potential suitors.

He has many qualities - an eye for a pass, a wand of a left foot and bundles of energy, but last night he introduced the world to another.

He took a tumble under the footing of FC Nurnberg defender Javier Pinola - and the referee immediately gave Werder Bremen a penalty.

But Hunt, in an extraordinary show of good sportsmanship, explained to the referee there was no contact and that he should reverse the decision - which he did.

We wonder if he would have done the same if the score was not a comfortable 2-0…
