Chester defender Sam Hughes wants to sleep on Crystal Palace, Swansea offers

Chester City defender Sam Hughes says he wants to take a summer break before deciding his next move.

Crystal Palace, Swansea City, Burnley, Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley are all reportedly keen on the Chester captain.

Hughes told the Chester Chronicle: "I am still contracted to Chester, I am still a Chester player. This club has been good to me and who is to say that I won't sign a new deal here and play my football here next season?

"There are clubs interested but I will go on holiday and have a bit of time to myself and try and relax and unwind a little bit. I think I need that after this season. I'll be able to have a think about what is next and be able to make a decision when the time comes.

"But whatever happens this football club has been great for me. I've had the opportunity to grow and play football. To captain Chester against Tranmere was a massive moment for me, probably the proudest of my career. The club, the fans and everyone involved have been superb."
