Hunt Deal almost done?

Word is going around that despite rejecting a £500k bid from Reading for Noel Hunt last night, the club have now accepted a bid in the region of £750k.

It is thought that United are prepared to accept a bid closer to the £1m mark, with £750k thought to be the figure it would take to prise the Irishman away from Tannadice.

Rumour has it that the striker is now one route to the Madjeski Stadium to under go a medical, before putting pen to paper on a deal that will see him join forces with his brother Stephen Hunt.

It is noted that Hunt was set to be left out the squad to face Dunfermline tonight (not tomorrow as I stated elsewhere) due to a knock.

I'm more than happy for this deal, if true, to go through. Yes, his goals last season were important and will be a big loss for the team, but (and here I go putting all my faith in one man) if Warren Feeney can chip in with a few this year and this likes of Shala and Sandaza can pick up a years experience, I reckon the loss of Hunt wont be as dramatic as some may thing.

And we can very well argue with a profit of £700k over a couple of years, can we?
