CRYSTAL Palace defender Jack Hunt has completed a move to Championship side Nottingham Forest. The defender has joined on loan until January. The 23-year-old right back is highly rated by the Premier League club, who spent £2m to sign him last summer. Hunt's career in London stalled initially when he broke his ankle in one of his first training sessions. The former Huddersfield player did recover in time to join Barnsley on loan in the second half of last season. Hunt is yet to play a game for the Eagles, as a result of his injury. But Forest will be hoping he rediscovers the form that saw him secure a place in the League One team of the year while with the Terriers, as well as winning their young player of the season award. Forest are struggling with a host of injury problems of their own, with five players who would normally challenge for a place in the back four likely to be sidelined until September. Eric Lichaj, who would have started as the club's first choice right back is among those players, with the American recovering from surgery on his groin. Hunt will now provide quality opposition for that place in the side, once Lichaj has returned to fitness.
