John Guidetti: Stoke target in transfer window

Swedish star Guidetti, 21, has played just once for City, in the Capital One Cup, though he has suffered with illness and injuries.

Hughes saw his team lose 5-3 at home to Liverpool on Sunday, the most goals they have scored in a Premier League game since 2004.

But Hughes - who remembers Guidetti from his time as City boss - wants more options up front for the remainder of the season.

"If we can get him in, he's a player that can add to what we have got and we are trying to add different options to our attack," he told the Sentinel.

"He's a natural goalscorer and if we can get him into the right areas, he will take chances.

"He was there (City) as a young player and worked with our under-21 coach Glynn Hodges when he was also there, so we know him."

e're our own worst enemy. We're suicidal in defence, and we may just get slaughtered on Sunday. Other than that, I am very pleased with my team.
