Nottingham Forest have signed Crystal Palace defender Jack Hunt on loan until 31 December.

The 23-year-old arrives at The City Ground at a time where fellow right back Eric Lichaj is recovering from a groin injury.

A product of Huddersfield Town’s youth set-up, Hunt progressed all the way through to The Terriers’ first team and went on to make 121 appearances during four years at The John Smith’s Stadium.

Palace saw enough in Hunt to take him to Selhurst Park in September 2013 but an ankle injury he sustained shortly after arriving in London limited his opportunities.

The injury ruled him out until Christmas and Hunt spent the second half of the season on loan at Barnsley, making 11 appearances for The Tykes.
