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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
