"I have known of him a long time and admired him from afar," Hughes told the club's official website.

"To get him now is a fantastic coup and a real statement of intent that we can attract the quality of player that he is. I am looking forward to working with him.

"He has got great ability, a good reputation in the game and a great personality.
