Nottingham Forest have signed Crystal Palace defender Jack Hunt on loan.

The 23-year-old will remain at the City Ground until January and will provide stern competition for the right-back spot once Eric Lichaj, who is recovering from groin surgery, is fit again.

Hunt joined Palace last summer but immediately suffered a broken ankle, although he recovered in time to join Barnsley on loan during the second half of the 2013/14 campaign.

Due to that problem, Hunt has yet to play a game for the Barclays Premier League club.
