Clough: No offers for Hughes

Derby County boss Nigel Clough has received no offers for Will Hughes, but concedes anything could happen before deadline day.

Will Hughes: Has been linked with a move to the Premier League

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."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
