Stephen Hunt fired a parting shot at Hull's financial mis-management after swapping Humberside for the Black Country.

Hunt, 28, signed a three-year deal with Wolves for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £3million. Cash-strapped Hull have been left with no option but to sell their most prized assets as they look to get their finances back on track, and Hunt was grateful for the understanding shown as he sought a move back to the top flight following the Tigers' relegation.

But he also hit out at the way the club have nothing to show for their two-year spell in the Barclays Premier League but fond memories and debts of around £35million, saying: "At Reading we had a good structure, when we got promoted the club improved the training ground, they improved everything to go with it. The thing I will say about Hull is it was disappointing that the facilities never really got any better."

"The training ground probably got worse because it got older, a lot of money has probably gone from there that should have been spent on the structure of the club and to secure the future in terms of at least a good academy.

"But all they have are memories for the fans, and that's all they've got really. It's disappointing for the players as well I think."
