Man City boss Hughes delighted with Evans progress

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes is pleased with the progress of Ched Evans this season.

Evans was a big hit on loan at Norwich, and Hughes told City's website: "You want your young players to make an impact when they go on loan, and Ched quickly showed he could play in the Championship standing on his head.

"He's played games in the Premier League now and acquitted himself really well, so he can play at a high level. His international career will supplement his career here and help his development as well.

"Obviously it's better if he's in a winning team - it can be a bit soul-destroying if you are in a group of young players not getting positive results. But looking at the crop coming through, hopefully things will change.

"A lot of them are playing for Premier League teams and getting exposure to the hardest league in the world. You'd like to think that, because of that, they will progress rapidly. It's about maintaining that progress."
