NICKY Hunt has set his sights on guiding Rotherham United into the Championship after becoming Steve Evans’ fourth signing of the summer.

The right-back, who finished last season with Preston, agreed a one-year deal, who also re-signed former captain Ian Sharps yesterday.

Hunt was released at the end of the season by Preston North End. The 28-year-old, who played in the Europa League at Bolton, said: “I just want to give it my all and get this club into the Championship, I got a phone call off Steve and out of courtesy I came and met him, and from the first time he opened his mouth it was brilliant.”
