Stoke City boss Mark Hughes admitted some frustration with their summer market campaign.

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes admitted some frustration with their summer market campaign.

Hughes struggled to land his striker targets during the window before signing Marko Arnautovic from Werder Bremen.

"It's fair to say I've pursued a number of targets and you won't always get the ones you want, but we did get the majority of them," he told The Sentinel.

"Few clubs can say, hand on heart, that they got everybody they wanted.

"It's on record that we pursued a number that fell through, but when you look back at what we have got and the balance of the squad, I am delighted. Overall, it has been a good window.

"It's important if you go into the market that you come out with a stronger squad, and I think we have."
