Bristol City defender Jack Hunt has revealed he is yet to have talks with the South West club about extending his stay at Ashton Gate.
The 29-year-old has been a regular fixture since he joined the Robins in 2018 and has been an impressive performer under Dean Holden this term.
However, Hunt’s current deal is set to expire this summer and, speaking to the Bristol Post, he provided an update on his future – indicating that talks are yet to be held about whether he’ll remain a City player beyond that point.
He said: “You’re right, I am out of contract in the summer. There’s not been any discussions about me staying longer than that at this moment in time. Football at the moment is a crazy place, and I’m just concentrating on being available and carrying on my good form.
“My representatives and the club may come to some agreement if those discussions do take place at some point. But as long as I’m playing on the pitch, I’m happy.”
The 29-year-old is one of a number of City players whose future remains unclear and there have been previous suggestions that talks are underway over new contracts for Famara Diedhiou and Liam Walsh.
Hunt joined the Robins from Sheffield Wednesday in 2018 and has made 80 appearances since, though this role has become even more integral this term.
Under Holden, wing-backs are a key part of the way the Robins attack and he has added one goal and two assists already this season.
Are these 12 facts about the Robins’ history genuine or not?
It appears there has been no movement over offering the City defender a new deal but it seems he would be open to stay, which is good news for the Ashton Gate faithful.
Hunt has made a strong start to the season and looks set to be a key man for the Robins, particularly with Fulham loanee Steven Sessegnon sidelined due to injury.
Consistency has been an issue that the 29-year-old has faced in the past but if he continues to impress you feel he will be offered a new deal.
