Hughes happy with Stoke depth

Mark Hughes is pleasantly surprised by the depth and strength of his Stoke City squad.

The Welshman has brought in Erik Pieters from PSV Eindhoven and Marc Muniesa from Barcelona but says the group of players he inherited from Tony Pulis is fairly impressive as it is.

"I have to say I've been really pleased with the technical ability of the squad as a whole and I think maybe I've been guilty of assuming there's a certain type of player here," he said.

"That's not the case I've been really pleased with what I've found here and the level of ability that's in the building."
