Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is ready to work through to the final minutes of the summer market.

Hughes admits he would like to do his business early in the summer, but has no qualms about working up to deadline day.

"Ideally you would prefer to have them in on the first day of pre-season but that is not always possible," he said.

"I have done good business right up to the last day of the window and up to the last minute and you take the opportunities when they present themselves, the transfer market is not easy to navigate and we are pleased with the two guys we have brought in and we will look at what is out there if we feel there are players out there that can help us then we will go for them."
