Hunt is looking for a new club after being released by Wolves at the end of last season.

A number of clubs have been linked with a move for the 32-year-old, but Blackpool could be now ready to offer him a deal at Bloomfield Road if he impresses during his training stint.

Hunt linked up with Blackpool for training last week but the Republic of Ireland international is refusing to rush into joining a new club.

"I've had some decent offers and I'm just looking for the right time," Hunt is quoted as saying in the Blackpool Gazette.

"I'm taking a little bit of a gamble but in the long run it might be worth it for me.

"I liken it to a game of poker. I've been dealt a few hands in the last few weeks that I've kind of thrown back into the mix, waiting for a different one - a pair of kings hopefully."
