Blues manager Alex McLeish hopes that he can extend the loan spell of Bolton defender Noel Hunt.

Hunt has done well for the club since joining on an initial month`s loan at the start of November, he has just one more game left at St Andrews.

When asked if he was interested in keeping Hunt for longer, McLeish said: ‘We’ll have to look at that because Stephen Kelly is still a wee bit away from fitness but Stuart Parnaby is 100 per cent fit again.

‘We have to be thinking about keeping Nicky around. He looked great (against Wolves), he brought his Premiership experience to the team and he was a threat going forward and it was such a shame to lose him.

‘It (his hamstring injury) was serious enough to take him off but hopefully it’s not too bad for Nicky, he’s got another game left for us.’
