Hughton signed winger Redmond for an initial £2million from Birmingham City.
"He's an exciting young player with an array of skills," Hughton said after Redmond set up Jonny Howson in the 1-1 draw at Brighton. "What you always want is an end product. This is a real good development curve for him. If someone's playing well enough and forcing their way into the team then it will be because it's on merit."
