Derby County boss Nigel Clough is delighted to be starting the new season with Will Hughes available.

The superkid is a top target for Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham, but remains with the Rams.

Clough said: “If he keeps up the same level, he will attract interest.

“Not many of his age play in the Championship and last season – at only 17 – he was remarkable.

“He will be playing for the England Under-21s in the near future. He is bright enough to know that if he keeps doing it, everything will follow.”
