Derby boss Clough urges Arsenal, Man City target Hughes to stay

Derby County boss Nigel Clough is urging Will Hughes to stay.

Manchester City, Arsenal and Barcelona are being linked with the 17 year-old.

"We feel that Will could be lost in the system if he moves too soon and I think he understands that as well," said Clough.

"The best possible thing for him at the moment is to stay with us, get a season or two under his belt in the Championship and just keep learning and improving.

"Can we hang onto him? We hope we can.

"We have not had any contact or bids for him from clubs, although there are plenty of scouts coming to watch him and we don't think they are coming to watch Gareth Roberts at 34!"
