There’s been plenty of speculation about Derby’s teenage sensation Will Hughes. Today rumours have been doing the rounds in a number of different sites and newspapers. The Daily Mirror have suggested that Manchester City will look to offer £6 million plus players for Hughes after making a ‘firm inquiry’. Whereas The Sun say that the Premier League champions are keen to sign him for £7 million. It’s believed that Man City assistant manager David Platt watched the 17-year old take on Brighton on Saturday. Arsenal, Tottenham, Fulham and Liverpool have all been linked with the midfielder in recent times.
Nothing has been confirmed regarding Will Hughes, with the club saying they’re not looking to sell but will be more of a force in the transfer market – pushing for bigger fees and not selling for pitons. Today the youngster expressed his delight at the recent snow:
Training in the snow is class.
