Reading sign Hunt from Dundee Utd

Last updated : 24 July 2008 By Angus Muller
Reading's improved offer for Noel Hunt has seen the Dundee Utd striker head South to join brother Stephen ar the Madejski.

The fee has not been disclosed but Hunt has signed at three year deal with Reading and has immediately been flown out to Sweden to join the rest of the squad on the pre season tour.

"I'd like to thank chief executive Stephen Thompson and manager Craig Levein for their assistance in concluding this deal," Nicky Hammond told the club's official website.

"Dundee United didn't want to lose Noel, but understood his real desire to embark upon a new challenge with Reading Football Club.

"From my conversations with Noel, it is clear that he possesses the qualities of hunger and determination that Steve Coppell wants at this club as we attempt to regain a place in the Premier League."
