Speaking to iDiski Times, Hunt said: “Right now, as I stand right now, obviously, there’s been discussions.

“We know things are on the go. He’s not here. 2 & 2, put 1 & 1 together. Obviously, something’s has to happen.

“Because he’s been a great servant for the club, for 19 years. I mean, I gave him his debut how many years ago? So you know, the opportunity has come for him and you can’t deny the opportunity that has been given.

“So I don’t know if anything’s been done, as we stand. And obviously, by the hour, by the minute things are happening, that’s all I can say really.”
