Stoke City midfielder Steven N'Zonzi says he's enjoying his football under manager Mark Hughes.

A summer transfer request is now a distant memory for the Frenchman.

N'Zonzi admitted to the Mirror: "I am enjoying my football and we have had some great results this season, like when we beat Chelsea.

"The atmosphere when we play one of the big teams at the Britannia Stadium is fantastic.

"They get behind the team even more.

"Our dressing room after the Chelsea game was one of the happiest I have known. There were smiles everywhere."

And N'Zonzi is thriving under the tutelage of the new managerial regime.

"I like it," said N'Zonzi. " They have a good mentality and good approach to the game."
