Departing striker says he'll be taking the positives…

Departing United striker Noel Hunt would like to say thank you for the support he has received since he arrived at the club in 2013.

Hunt, who made a total of 22 appearances for United, cancelled his contract by mutual consent on Wednesday but he insists he feels no bitterness towards the club.

“I feel no bitterness in anyway towards anyone associated at the club,” said Hunt. “All the way from the president, to all the coaching and general staff at Thorp Arch and at Elland Road, I’d like to say thank you.

“Everyone made the experience as enjoyable as possible and I’d also like to thank the supporters for everything you have shown me. I leave the club with many happy memories.

“My home is in Leeds and that will continue and I have made many friends during my time at the club.”

Since joining the club in the summer of 2013 Noel started 14 games but with no goals scored the striker admits it didn’t quite work out for him at Elland Road.

“It didn’t quite happen for me here for whatever reason,” added Hunt. “But I appreciate the support I have received, whether that be on or off the field.

“I love the club and I’ll be taking the positives from my time at Leeds United.

“I wish all the boys, Neil Redfearn and the supporters well for the rest of the season and the future.”
