Adam, who made the move to Stoke from Liverpool last year, lost his place in the first team under Tony Pulis before dropping out of Scotland's starting line-up.

But Hughes is confident he can revitalise Adam's playing career as well as improve the fortunes of a club that finished 13th in the 2012/13 season.

Hughes said: "I'm looking forward to working with Charlie day in day out and it will be an exciting time.

"We'll get to know each other on a number of levels. I know his quality and he can affect a game in all manner of ways by the strength of his ability.

"It's about getting the best out of him and finding the best position for him to be most effective.

"Whenever players have been involved with my coaching group they've enjoyed the day-to-day stuff. If you enjoy the work you will improve as you have the motivation to come in and work hard every single day.

"That's the environment I'm trying to create."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
