Stoke snap up Moses on loan

Stoke have signed Victor Moses, 23, on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

Moses has struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge since moving from Wigan in 2012 and spent last season on loan at Liverpool.

He is Mark Hughes' sixth signing of the summer, but will not be available for the opening-day clash with Aston Villa at the Britannia Stadium.

City chief executive Tony Scholes said: "We are delighted to have secured the services of such an exciting young talent in Victor."

Stoke boss Mark Hughes is hopeful of adding more new players to his squad before the end of the transfer window.

Hughes has declared himself "very pleased" with the business he has done so far, which has seen him recruit Bojan Krkic, Mame Biram Diouf, Steve Sidwell, Phil Bardsley and Dionatan Teixeira - all of whom could all make their competitive debuts in the club's Premier League opener against Aston Villa.

Hughes recently admitted his interest in Norwich's England Under-21 winger Nathan Redmond, and speaking on Friday he said: "We are still hopeful on a number of fronts.

"We just have to bide our time. I think a lot things are dictated by people other than ourselves, so you just have to wait for the process to run its course and we'll see where we are at the end of it."

Hughes interested in Norwich winger Redmond

Stoke boss Mark Hughes has admitted he is interested in signing Norwich winger Nathan Redmond.

Redmond, 20, joined Norwich from Birmingham last summer and has made 40 appearances for the Canaries, scoring once.

Hughes said of the England Under-21 international on Sky Sports News: "There is interest there - he's a good young player and a player we would like.

"But he's not our player, he's Norwich's player, and they are obviously well within their rights to retain him.

"He's under contract to them and there is nothing moving at the moment. So we'll just have to bide our time maybe."

Stoke making no progress with Assaidi deal

Stoke manager Mark Hughes has revealed his hopes of landing Oussama Assaidi on a permanent basis have "gone cold".

Liverpool striker Assaidi spent all of last season on loan with the Potters, scoring five goals in 25 appearances.

"It's common knowledge Ozzie is somebody we would like to bring into the club, but at the moment that deal has gone cold," Hughes told Stoke City Player.

"He is one we have chased for a while now, but there hasn't been any real movement on that front, so we will just have to wait and see what the situation is with regards to that deal."
