Hunt: One-month loan agreement

Hunt joined the Millers in the summer after leaving Preston but he has been restricted to nine appearances this season and last featured as a substitute in November's 3-2 defeat to Wycombe.

Rotherham boss Steve Evans has sanctioned the move so Hunt - who made 161 appearances across 10 seasons at Bolton - can benefit from the opportunity of much-needed match practice.

Stanley counterpart Leam Richardson is delighted to have the 29-year-old on board to fill his team's problem position of right-back.

"Nicky's got vast experience and he's played at every level in the Football League," Richardson told Accrington's official website.

"It's been a position that we've been crying out for all year. People have been in there and done a good job but right-back is a position I'd identified that we needed to fill.

"With Nicky's experience and his quality going forward and defensively hopefully we've filled that gap.

"He's a player I targeted quite early on and he was really eager to come and play for Accrington Stanley.

"He's been in touch wishing us luck and really showed a hunger to come and play for us. I really, really like that in a professional."

Hunt, who also counts Birmingham, Derby and Bristol City among his former clubs, goes straight into the Accrington squad to face Chesterfield on New Year's Day.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
