Hughes still looking for new signings

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has confirmed he is still looking to add to his squad this summer.

The Welshman has only signed  Marc Muniesa and Erik Pieters, since taking over from Tony Pulis, at the end of last season, and despite stating there  nothing is currently in the pipeline at the Britannia Stadium, he admitted he is prepared to swoop if the right deal becomes available.

"We get linked with a lot of players," Hughes told Sky Sports News.

"More often or not if I have worked with them we get linked at some point, but we are in obviously the market and we will see what is out there.

"If we see something that makes sense in terms of the package and is the right type of player to add to the quality we have got then we will pursue it, but at the moment there is nothing in the offing. But if we target the right player we will have a real go at bringing him to the football club.

"I have done good business right up to the last day of the window and up to the last minute and you take the opportunities when they present themselves, the transfer market is not easy to navigate and we are pleased with the two guys we have brought in."

Stoke have been recently linked with Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe.
