Reading boss Coppell angry with Sunderland over Hunt bid

Reading boss Steve Coppell is annoyed with Sunderland for unsettling Stephen Hunt with a £2.5million bid that Reading were always going to reject.

He said: "There has been a bid but there is no way that Stephen Hunt will be leaving this club at this moment in time.

"He is typical of what we are about. He is a free transfer from Brentford, someone that has something to prove on a game-by-game basis and as far as I am concerned has been one of our key players for 18 months.

"I would like to go back to the old way of doing business where you phone people up and that verbal communication is the end.

"Their making the bid public didn't do me any favours. I would like to think we would do our business in the old-fashioned way."
