Jack Hunt: Defender has impressed at Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday face competition for the signature of on-loan Crystal Palace defender Jack Hunt, sources have told TEAMtalk.

Hunt is currently on a season-long loan to Wednesday from Crystal Palace and the right-back has impressed at Hillsborough.

The 25-year-old has made 21 appearances in all competitions for Wednesday and the Owls have indicated they would be keen on making his move permanent during this month’s transfer window.

However, several other Championship clubs are keeping tabs on Hunt’s situation and could make a move for the former Huddersfield man if Palace decide to sell him.

Hunt joined Palace in September 2013 from Huddersfield, but has yet to feature for the club after suffering a serious ankle injury in training just after signing and then spending last season on loan at Nottingham Forest and Rotherham.

Palace rate Hunt highly and are reluctant to sell the full-back, but they would consider an offer that would see them recoup a fee that comes close to what they paid for the player.
