'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Hunt hoping to help wake up a sleeping giant

New signing Noel Hunt says he is ready to work hard to help Leeds United push for promotion to the Premier League.

The 30-year-old, who spent last season in the Premier League with Reading before coming to the end of his deal with the Berkshire club, says he wants to help wake up a sleeping giant.

Speaking on the official website , Hunt said, 'It's one of the top six clubs in England and expectations are massive, but we have to get back where we should be and the only way we will do that is by working hard, and the fans have to get behind us as well.

'The fans can be the 12th man. I always hated playing at Leeds - you knew you were in for a battle, on the field and off it - but I'm looking forward to them getting behind me now.

'I received a lot of messages from fans on Twitter which were very encouraging and there's no doubt in my mind about coming here. It's a massive club. I think it's a sleeping giant that needs to be woken up.'


Hunt put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal at Elland Road after being linked with the club all summer and a re-union with his former Reading boss Brian McDermott.

The Republic of Ireland international admits, he had five or six clubs interested in signing him this summer, including two from the Premier League but once he knew McDermott was keen on bringing him to Elland Road, there was only ever going to be one club that he would sign for.

Hunt becomes the third player signed by McDermott this summer following the arrivals of Matt Smith from Oldham Athletic and Luke Murphy from Crewe Alexandra.
