Clough: No offers for Hughes

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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
