The 34-year old has been training with Tony Mowbray's side for over a week and says he has enjoyed his time at the club.

"I've really enjoyed the training and the atmosphere around the club. It's a great place to come into and delighted to sign a deal,” he said.

"I'm really looking forward to it as Tony Mowbray is an attacking manager and I've done really well previously under managers who try and play the same way.

The 39-cap Republic of Ireland international has previously played in the Premier League with Reading, Hull City and Wolverhampton Wanderers and is adamant he still has a lot to offer.

"I believe I should be playing in the Championship but I said to myself that if I was going to drop down, I'd want to come to a club on the top and at the top end of the league.

"Of course, I like to earn a longer-term deal which will keep me here until the end of the season as there is a great group of players here who can achieve something this season."

Hunt's last club was Championship side Ipswich Town who he left in the summer after 38 appearances at Portman Road in two seasons.
