Stoke boss Hughes expects transfer market work to intensify
Hughes is keen to continue his signing spree this week.
"People are coming back from the World Cup, so things can move on quite quickly," he told The Sentinel.
"We are still keen to add to the squad if the right quality at the right price is available. But we are in a good place because of the early work (four signings) already done.
"I think everybody takes an interest in the World Cup games, but if I'm honest, there's no secrets in world football now.
"Our targets were set before the World Cup kicked off, to be honest, and anybody who then makes a big impact at the World Cup we would have known about anyway."
