Derby County boss Nigel Clough admits they'll struggle to keep hold of Will Hughes.

Manchester City aim to beat Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona to the 18-year-old Derby midfielder, then loan him back to them next season.

“If somebody blows us out of the water with a massive offer then he will go, but that is the same at any club,’’ said Clough.

‘‘Every player has his price, in any league, but we will always try to keep our best players.

‘‘Our aim is to get into a position financially to hang on to them.”
