United confirmed on Wednesday that the former Reading man is now a free agent after a disappointing display in the white shirt.
Hunt failed to score during his 22 appearances for Leeds and many fans will not be disappointed to see him leave the club.
He was one of Brian McDermott's first signings at the club and Leeds' former boss was confident he could fire Leeds up the table.
While Hunt showed plenty of passion and energy his luck in front of goal was at an all-time low.
Despite some fans showing their dismay at his form, those connected with the club seem to hold Hunt in high regard and the 32-year-old has thanked those at the club for their support.
He told the club's official website: "I feel no bitterness in anyway towards anyone assoicated at the club. All the way from the President, to all the coaching and general staff at Thorp Arch and at Elland Road, I'd like to say thank you.
"Everyone made the experience as enjoyable as possible and I'd also like to thank the supporters for everything you have shown me. I leave the club with many happy memories."
Hunt's release will now leave room for another striker with his wages to go elsewhere. Of course with the transfer embargo, United must sign free agents or loans without a fee.
