Ipswich Town have completed the signing of midfielder Stephen Hunt on a short-term contract until January.
The former Wolves and Reading winger has been without a club since he was released by Wolves in the summer.
The Republic of Ireland international will be re-united with his former Wolves manager Mick McCarthy at Portman Road.
Hunt told the Ipswich Town Official Site how he is looking forward to giving his all for his new club and believes he is ready for action straightaway, after keeping himself fit during the summer.
“I’m delighted to get the deal done and I’m looking forward to playing for Ipswich and getting some minutes on the pitch,” Town’s new number 12 told the Club website.
“I’m hungry to get on the pitch and show people what I can do and I’ll be giving my all to Ipswich. I trained with the lads in pre-season so I know most of them and I should have no problems settling in.
“Obviously I know Mick and TC [Terry Connor] too and they are honest guys. You know exactly what you will get with them and they were big factors in me coming here.
“It’s been a frustrating summer for me. I turned down a few offers that maybe I should have taken, whilst at the same time I’ve been mucked about by a few clubs.
“But that’s gone now and I’m delighted to sign for Ipswich. I know it’s a reliable Club with a good reputation and tradition, so I’m looking forward to get playing.
“I’ve kept myself in good shape and looked after my body but I will only know how fit I am by getting out there and playing.
“I’ll be ready when called upon and hopefully the adrenaline will push me on and the lungs will hold up fine.”
