Having already secured the signature of midfielder Steve Sidwell, Hughes is keen to further add to the quality he already possesses in the squad.
"I've got a great group - I've been saying that for a long time," Hughes told fulhamfc.com. "They want to do well, progress and get to the next level and that's part of my remit. I think since the West Ham game, where we didn't play particularly poorly but we just had a poor result, we've really dug in and have shown good qualities. We're really looking forward to what's ahead of us.
"I think it's important that you stimulate the group, you can't just rest on your laurels. The same group of players have had a couple of great years without that many changes - but it's important that you keep adding quality."
