Agudelo was back at Stoke this week after his work permit rejection.
Hughes stated: "He's been over here this week, but as we stand at the moment the work permit was cancelled, and that's where we are.
"He was coming over here anyway and knows a number of guys, so it was an opportunity to see a few familiar faces."
And the re-application? "There's no plan to go back at the moment."
