Manchester City boss Mark Hughes intends to hold onto Welsh striker Ched Evans.

Hughes told BBC Radio Manchester: "He's been excellent in pre-season and we're delighted we've secured him.

"I think I'm going to frustrate quite a lot of teams at [Championship] level because he won't be going anywhere in this window."

He continued: "[His ability] is demonstrated by the amount of phone calls I've had from Championship teams trying to get him out on loan."
