Hunt set to leave Wolves

Hunt set to leave Wolves

As Ståle Solbakken continues to assemble a Wolves squad in his vision, Stephen Hunt has become the latest player to become surplus to requirements.

As we suggested a few days ago Stephen Hunt is receiving interest from Premier League side Fulham and could be set to be the next one out of the door along with Kevin Doyle and Stephen Ward who have been linked with Aston Villa and Everton over the past few days.

In contrast to the transfer shenanigans regarding Steven Fletcher and Matt Jarvis which saw Wolves wring Sunderland and West Ham for every penny that they had for the pair, it would seem that there are certain players around the squad that Solbakken isn't bothered about putting much of a fight for and Hunt looks like being one of those players.

"I had an open discussion with Stephen and said we`ll see what happens," said Solbakken to the Shropshire Star.

He continued: "If he wants to stay and fight for his place, that`s fine, but if we get an offer in that`s acceptable, he will leave."

Vital Wolves Comment: So what kind of offer would be acceptable to you?

Out with the old & in with the new. Thanks Hunt, but your services are surplus to requirements. Be a nice slice off the wage bill.

I still think if he could get injury free for a while he'd be great

When we bought Hunt in 2010, complete with long-term injury (inflicted by one of our players), he was seen as our saviour. Indeed, his goal kept us in the PL at the end of the 2010-11 season. And don't forget his fantastic performance against WBA. He also doubled up as an effective defender, when the oppostion were coming at us. He retained his form throughout that summer, notably in the Irish game against Italy. Thereafter, injury stalled his progress and he never seemed to recapture his best form again. It's a pity because when he was on fire, we could forget about MJ and MK. With the arrival of Peszko, Boukari and (shortly) Sako, Hunt has dropped down the pecking order and he deserves to find a club that will play him. I wish him well.

Good character who ran his socks off for the team but I just don't think he ever came near living up to expectations. The manager has had to make his mind up on a lot of players over a relatively short period of time, and alongside his DVD collection, which he was hopefully flinging across the room whilst crossing names out on his jotter pad, Hunt clearly has not done enough to convince him of major worth during the summer- as this news comes towards the end of the window. Fair enough from the manager again saying if he wants to fight for his place, but I think after saying he will accept bids it is better for the club and the player that he moves on.

Actually his goal was irrelevant due to Brums late demise but as I said, never rated him espcially after his performance against blues in the cup last year, this after being in the press saying he was ready to fight for his place..

GH: Hunt's goal wasn't irrelevant because it meant that Birmingham had to score again. In trying to do so (even the goalie went up in attack), they shipped a goal, lost the game and were relegated by one point. NB: before Hunt's goal and with three minutes to go WW and Birmingham were both on 40 points with goal differences of -21 (WW) and -20 (BC). It was that close. Yet, did management listen to the alarm bells? and we still need quality defenders.

wasnt starting an arguement SB60 just saw it differently thats all. i still will be glad to see him go...the only issue I have with Ståle at the moment is the inability to recognise Wardy is no great left back..

... and we agree about the need for another LB. I suspect that SS likes the overlapping part of Ward's role as an LB. It's a pity SW is not so good at the defending bit. But, then, why should he? He's a forward.

SB I dont see a better LB in this league personally , you all seriously needed to look at Berra not Ward , the amount of covering tackles Ward did for Berra was unbelievable last year , no wonder Ward looked confused at times , he didn't know whetehr to mark his own man or save Berra's arse again ! SB you do make sense a lot of the time but name some LB's you would like in and who we could get , because there is not many better than Ward in this league believe me if any at all ! , is it because he knobs McCarthy's daughter where all this hate on one player came from ? , I remember an era where Wolves fans backed a player whether they thought he was good or bad , now its oh hes rubbish we need a new one and fans vent this at games too , its a disgrace to hear and those who do it should be ashamed to class themself as a fan !
