Man City boss Hughes rules out stop-gap signings for African absentees

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes insists they won't make stop-gap signings in January to cover Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure during their African Nations Cup commitments.

"We won't go into the market just because we have players missing for the African Cup of Nations as that would be foolhardy," said Hughes, who has the fit-again Robinho available to play against Hull City.

"If players become available who we think will enhance the team long-term it goes without saying we will be interested. But nothing will be happening in terms of covering us just over the short-term."
