Hunt is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest, and is reported to be attracting interest from a number of different sides, but Stuart Pearce has been warned that he may not have a chance of signing the defender on a permanent basis.
"It's unfortunate for Forest because an opportunity existed at the time that doesn't exist anymore," Parish told the South London Press.
"I like Stuart a lot, he's always been very nice to me, and I can understand him being a bit frustrated.
"I'm not sure if Neil wants to let Jack go. He wants to watch him. Forest have still got him and they are still doing well. I'm happy for him to be there - they are a good club."
Hunt moved to Palace from Huddersfield Town in September 2013.
