Newcastle Determined To Sign Hull City Midfielder Stephen Hunt

Newly promoted side Newcastle United have joined the race for Hull City midfielder Stephen Hunt.

Local newspapers have reported that Wolves remain keen on Hunt after failing with a £5million bid in January and now Chris Hughton has set his sights on the winger.

Hunt, now age 28, who is currently recovering from surgery on his right foot, has proved he is Premier League class and Hughton feels he would strengthen Newcastle on their return to the top-flight.

The Tigers hope Newcastle’s interest will start a bidding war with Wolves and enable them to make a profit on the £3.5million they paid Reading for him last year.
