Hughes is considered to be one of the hottest prospects currently plying their trade outside of the Premier League.

At the age of just 18, the 2013/14 campaign is his third season as a member of Derby's senior squad.

His potential was spotted early at Pride Park, with Clough having no qualms about throwing Hughes in at the deep end.

The problem for Derby is that the youngster's obvious ability has also been noted by clubs higher up English football's food chain.

A switch to the Premier League has been mooted for a man who shone for England's U21 side in their 6-0 demolition of Scotland on Tuesday night.

Clough acknowledges that his resolve could be tested before the close of the summer transfer window, as clubs make late bids to bolster their ranks, but he is hoping speculation regarding Hughes' long-term future can be shelved until at least January.

He said: "There's been no official approach from anyone, but as the window starts to close it might intensify."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
