Hughes admits Oliveira interest

New Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has stated that he would be interested in signing Benfica striker Nelson Oliveira on loan.

Yes, there's an interest there.

He's a player I've seen before and who I know. He's a little bit different to what we've got.

I'm not sure how far down the line we are but, if we can get him, he'll be a good player for us.

He's young, but he has played for his country, so he obviously has a good pedigree, and I'm sure we will try and get games out of him straight away.
