The full-back has moved to the City Ground on an initial six-month deal from Crystal Palace.

Having been snapped up by Palace from Huddersfield Town for £2million last summer, Hunt is still waiting to make his competitive bow for the Premier League side.

An unfortunate injury shortly after his arrival was followed by a loan stint at Barnsley over the second-half of the 2013/14 campaign.

Hunt has once again been allowed to go in search of first team football outside of Selhurst Park and the 23-year-old says he would be happy to stay on at Forest if he enjoys a productive run.

He said: “I have only just arrived, so it is a bit soon to be talking about it, but if Forest did want to keep me for the second half of the season, it would be a conversation that we would have to have with Palace.

“But it is such a big club and I don’t see what would stop me from staying if the opportunity arose.”

Hunt added: “My initial goal is to help Forest get up the table and get some games under my belt at the same time. I don’t believe there are many better teams I could have come to in this league.

“I am a Palace player and I do have a long time left on my contract, but I am at Forest now and I will do everything I can to get the club to where they want to be.

“It is also putting myself in the shop window at the same time, but hopefully I can go back to Palace in January and play.

“If it works out otherwise, we will see what happens in the future.”

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
