Mark Hughes hoping for star signing

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes reveals that he is still in the market for one new player this summer, but wants the acquisition to be "of top, top quality".

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has revealed that he is in the market for a player of "top, top quality" as he looks to conclude his summer transfer business.

The Potters have already signed seven new players in the off-season, but Hughes is not quite finished as he attempts to add a star signing to his squad.

"We're still hopeful we can get a player of top, top quality - if we can do that we'll probably be done," he told BBC Sport.

Stoke were strongly linked with a move for Inter Milan's Xherdan Shaqiri, but have now dropped their interest in the Swiss international.

Hughes's team will continue their pre-season preparations against Wrexham on Wednesday.
