Derby County boss Nigel Clough admits he could be forced to sell Will Hughes.

Manchester City and Arsenal are tracking the 17 year-old.

"If anybody wants him, they know it will be serious money,” he told The Derby Telegraph.

"Nothing has changed. If an offer comes in for Will or any player, it will be judged on its merits. If we think it is good business and we can do something with it, then we will do it.

"We see the list of scouts for our matches at Pride Park and it is their job to be watching all the good young talent in the Championship and below.

"When a 17-year-old looks to have the ability Will has, then it is bound to attract attention. It is inevitable. We don't mind that at all. It shows he is doing something right and it is great for our Academy."
