Coventry City have signed Irish midfielder Stephen Hunt on a short-term contract.

The Sky Blues have snapped up the former Republic of Ireland international after training with Tony Mowbray’s side for over a week.



The 34-year old started his career at Crystal Palace in 1998 before moving to Brentford and then Reading in 2005.

Hunt played for the Royals in the Premier League before moving to Hull City in 2009 and then Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

Hunt’s last club was Ipswich Town where he made 38 appearances in a two-year spell at Portman Road before leaving in the summer.

City manager Tony Mowbray said: “Stephen has been training with the squad for over a week now and we’ve offered him a short-term contract to continue that opportunity to challenge for a place in our first-team.

“He has fantastic pedigree, both in the Premier League and at international level, and will give us another valuable option going forward.

“I’m sure he’ll be a positive influence in the dressing room and could maybe help some of our players with his experience.”
