Jack Hunt: Happy with Premier League move

The Town academy product, 22, was snapped up by Palace towards the end of the deadline in a deal reportedly worth up to £2million.

Whilst sad to leave Town, he admits he had to take the chance of moving to the Premier League.

"The interest from Crystal Palace filled me with a lot of confidence," Hunt told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner.

"Obviously the Premier is the best league in the world and I jumped at the chance to go to Palace.

"I spoke to the manager for a good hour, hour-and-a-half and the chat was brilliant, he is a brilliant man and very honest.

"I can't wait to play for him and you can see why he has such a good team spirit there, and that was only after one conversation with him.

"From my point of view, playing against better players will only improve me.

"I have got quite a bit of experience for my age, but to test myself against the best players in the world, in the best league in the world, will be brilliant for me."
