Hughes impressed with Agudelo

Stoke manager Mark Hughes has been impressed by Juan Agudelo's progress at Utrecht and is gearing up to make a second work permit application for the United States striker.

Juan did very well in the game I saw.

He scored a good goal, showed a lot of technical ability as well, and I was able to see him after the game, which was pleasing because I haven't seen him for a number of weeks.

He seemed quite content and is happy with his situation. Utrecht is a good club; they've got a good set-up and I was very impressed with their stadium, which is a nice stage for him to ply his trade.

He and I were both talking about the work permit and I hope we're able to get one this time - that's certainly what he's focusing on.
