Noel Hunt has set his sights on promotion after being reunited with Brian McDermott at Leeds.

The Irishman - who left Reading after his contract expired at the end of last season - has penned a two-year deal with the Yorkshire club and is relishing the challenge ahead in the Championship.

Hunt has wasted no time in stating his ambition for the club this season believing promotion is a realistic target for them to achieve.

"It has to be the number one target [promotion]," Hunt told Sky Sports News. "The club have showed intent, they have spent a few quid obviously got in a few players and I am sure there will be more to come.

"The big thing for this season is to get back into the top league in the country and this place has got all the foundations and all work to do it, so hopefully we can," he added.

Leeds - who finished 13th in the league - will be looking to end their nine-year exile from the Premier League this season as they prepare for life under the experienced McDermott.

Hunt will be hoping for more Championship success under Brian McDermott, after the ex-Reading star achieved promotion with the Royals in the 2011/12 season. 

Hunt and McDermott will come up against their former club for the first time on September 17  when they meet at the Madjeski stadium.
