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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
