'I have no future at Leeds' - Flop signing Noel Hunt speaks out

Leeds United 2

Noel Hunt has addressed his Leeds United future after signing on loan with Ipswich Town.

Noel Hunt clinched his loan switch to Ipswich Town on Thursday, signing on a month's deal.

While the arrangement is very much temporary, the 31-year-old is under no illusions his permanent future lies away from Elland Road.

Speaking to Ipswich Town's website after being unveiled, he said:

"It was a very easy move for me, what with the manager here and his record and the way he likes to play.

"The team is going well and hopefully I can help them stay at the top of the table over the next month and extend my stay here.

“I don’t think I have a future at Leeds and it’s time to move on and it will be great if I can do that at Ipswich."

It's in the interests of Leeds that Hunt is a success at Portman Road, so they can potentially sell him on in January.

As well as reducing their wage bill, his contract expires in June, and so any fee they could get for him would be a bonus.

With no goals in 22 appearances for Leeds, it's somewhat remarkable that with the Tractor Boys in the play-off spots, if it works out for club and player, Hunt could be playing Premier League football next season.
