Jack Hunt tweets delight at Sheffield Wednesday move; sends message to Crystal Palace

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Jack Hunt left Crystal Palace to sign permanently for Sheffield Wednesday.

Jack Hunt completed a permanent transfer to Sheffield Wednesday yesterday, and he took to his personal Twitter account to express delight at the move.

The 25-year-old defender has spent the first half of this season on loan with the Owls, playing 19 times in the Championship as Wednesday look to stay competitive at the top of the division.

The club have plans to win promotion to the Premier League this season, and Hunt has been a central part of their impressive defensive performances.

A former Huddersfield youth player, the right-back signed for Crystal Palace in the summer of 2013, but he failed to make a single appearance for the Eagles with the club playing in the top flight.

He spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest and then Rotherham United, before linking up with Wednesday over the summer, and impressing in their back-line.

After confirming his delight at being a permanent Wednesday player, Hunt also took to Twitter to thank Crystal Palace for his time at the club, despite never appearing for them.

He admitted he will always keep an eye out for their results, having enjoyed his time at Selhurst Park.
