Striker departs in loan deal until January...
Striker Noel Hunt has joined Championship rivals Ipswich Town on an emergency loan deal until January 3.
Hunt, who arrived at the club from Reading last summer, has made just two United appearances so far this season and has been out of the first-team picture since mid-August.
The 31-year-old, signed by Brian McDermott in July 2013, has been playing regularly in the club’s Under-21s side after falling down the pecking order at Elland Road.
His debut season at United also proved to be a frustrating one as he was hampered by injury problems and failed to score in any of his 20 appearances.
Hunt will now link up with Mick McCarthy’s side and older brother Stephen at Portman Road, where United travel on December 6.
However, the striker will be ineligible to play against his parent club.
