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."
