Hughes came off the bench to play five minutes against Peterborough on Saturday after missing more than two months with a groin problem.

The teenager's injury was more serious than first thought and Clough has hinted he may now wait until next season before fully re-introducing Hughes to first-team football.

Clough said: "It was more serious than a groin strain, it was a stress injury. You cannot put a time on such an injury so we must still be careful with him.

"We are still not sure if he is going to feature much more before the end of the season.

"The main thing is that he goes into the summer fit, works over the summer and comes back fit for pre-season training."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
