No offers have been made for unsettled Bristol City defender Nicky Hunt, according to manager Keith Millen.

The right-back, who arrived at Ashton Gate from Bolton last summer, has fallen out of favour at the club, making just eight Championship appearances last season.

Hunt, signed by former City boss Steve Coppell, has a year remaining on his deal, but Millen is keen to offload him this summer.

However, the manager claims the Robins are yet to receive any interest in the 28-year-old.

"At the moment, no one has come in for Hunt," Millen told This Is Bristol.

"He's got a year's contract, so if no one comes in he'll have to look after himself, get fully fit - which he has done this year - and see what happens."

Released

Millen, who has already parted ways with Ivan Sproule, John Akinde, Patrick Hoban and Jimmy Keohane, is under pressure to further trim his squad ahead of the new season.

He said: "I'm hoping to do some business as far as getting players out, because I need to get this squad smaller.

"But when they're under contract, then players - quite rightly - aren't going to just walk away.

"You need someone that's going to want them, and when that happens I'll look at the situation, talk to the player and make sure I do it the right way.

"It's still early days, but it is proving difficult getting players in or out at the moment."
