Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is still on the prowl to sign Stephen Hunt from Hull City, with two bids of £3m and £3.2m been rejected already, McCarthy has improved his bid once more to sign the Republic of Ireland international according to The Mirror . The improved bid said to be near the region of £3.5m which McCarthy states that it will be his final bid to try and tempt Hunt to move to Wolves.
The 28 year old has been along with Jimmy Bullard Hull City’s best player and has been a success so far since joining the Tigers in 2009 from Reading. Hunt has scored 5 goals in the Premier League, and McCarthy wants a player with some proven Premiership experience and Hunt fits the bill. With Kevin Doyle and Marcus Hahnemann now at Molineux, Hunt could be tempted to join his former Reading teammates.
Wolves are in need of great experience in order for them to stay in the Premiership, with them lying just above the relegation spot they are going to be in a battle to save themselves. McCarthy only has 5 days to add a few quality signings to give them the best possible chance to play in the Premier League in August.
But with Phil Brown ready to bring in Egyptian International Mido to partner up with his fellow countrymen Amir Zaki, this could fuel speculation and pave the way for Hunt to move, regardless Brown will be looking to recoup the £3.5m spent on Hunt in the summer.
