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."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
