"We see very much John's future here and we look forward to him being here," said Hughton. "John would be no different to any player we have here. Any interest in any of our players is just a mark and a testament to how well those individuals have done."
He added: "We start back training on Thursday. John is very much part of our plans and will be here.
"Then we go away to Austria next week and of course John is very much part of that. Any interest shown in any of our players is just a mark of how well they have done."
