Celtic sought January loan move for winger

STEPHEN HUNT has revealed that he came close to joining Celtic on loan before the close of the transfer window last month.

Neil Lennon spotted that Hunt had lost his place in the Wolves side and tried to bring the Waterford man to Parkhead, but the plan fell through.

"Celtic made an inquiry, from what I know. There was a possibility there but I'm not sure how far it went with either club, Celtic were trying to do a deal but it just didn't happen," Hunt told the Herald.

"I didn't let it bother me, I have been in that position in transfer windows before where it did get to me, so last month I let it wash over me, it wasn't a case of me looking to move.

"I believe in the manager here at Wolves and he still believes in me, even though I'm not in his team at the moment. It may take two or three games to get myself back in.

"It's disappointing to be out of the team, I can't say I am happy to be on the bench but I can understand why the manager took the decision he made.

"I have to prove to him that I'm good enough to be in the team."
