Grant said: “I got a call from Adie Boothroyd on Thursday evening asking for permission to speak to Martin. I think that was after the horse had bolted, really, because I think those talks had been going on.

Hunter arrived at Norwich in June 2006 as a replacement for Steve Foley. He applied for the manager's job when Nigel Worthington was sacked last October but was given just one match as caretaker manager before Grant was brought in.
