ON-LOAN Shaun Lunt is preparing for Leeds’ play-off semi-final trip to Wigan on Friday still unclear as to where he’ll be playing next season.
The 25-year-old hooker’s agent is still locked in negotiations between parent club Huddersfield and the Rhinos, with Lunt still having three years remaining on his Giants’ contract.
Lunt moved to Headingley in May after making just six substitute appearance for the Giants at the start of 2012.
His departure enabled former coach Nathan Brown to bring in Scott Moore.
But with Moore and fellow hooker Tommy Lee (who has since joined London Broncos) having now left the John Smith’s Stadium, there could be space for Lunt to return.
But the Cumbrian admits he hasn’t got a clue what’s happening or how talks are progressing.
“At the moment I just don’t know where I’ll be playing next season. I’ve as much idea as anyone else,” he said.
“I could be at Huddersfield, I could be at Leeds or I could be somewhere else.
“But the sooner it gets sorted out, the better it’s going to be for my family’s sake.
“My manager is in talks with both clubs. I wanted to leave it to him so I could just focus on playing and I’ve just got to see what happens.”
Lunt is again expected to be on the bench for Friday’s trip to the DW Stadium, when Leeds’ hopes of reaching a second successive Grand Final have been dealt a body blow with the loss of record-breaker Danny McGuire through suspension. The 29-year-old half-back has been handed a one-match ban, and a £300 fine.
