Jack Hunt says he would be open to the idea of making a permanent move to Nottingham Forest, writes ClubCall.
The 23-year-old joined Forest yesterday on a six-month loan deal from Crystal Palace.
Hunt has not had the best of times since moving to Selhurst Park from Huddersfield Town 12 months ago and is yet to feature of the Eagles.
He missed the majority of the season with an ankle injury and the manager that brought him to the club, Ian Holloway, was sacked and replaced by Tony Pulis.
Hunt ended last season on loan at Barnsley, who suffered relegation from the Championship.
The right-back said that should his future lie away from Crystal Palace then he would be happy to join Forest as he told the Nottingham Post:
“When I joined Palace I wanted to play in the Premier League. I have not had the chance to do that so far, for whatever reason.
“I would love the chance to do that, either with Forest or with Palace. I am only here for the first half of the season, for definite.
“I want to leave them as far up the table as I can when January comes around.
“I have only just arrived, so it is a bit soon to be talking about it. But if Forest did want to keep me for the second half of the season, it would be a conversation that we would have to have with Palace.
“But it is such a big club and I don’t see what would stop me from staying if the opportunity arose.”
