Man City boss Hughes says Europe not key to landing big names

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes says qualifying for the Europa League won't be a factor in attracting new signings.

"European qualification might not be as great as many would suppose in terms of attracting new players," he said.

"But there are other things we can present to players that are interesting in their own right."
